An innovative way to teach mitosis and meiosis!

Students make colourful model chromosomes and use them to work through the stages of cell division. The model can be used to teach mitosis and meiosis.

Download and print as many times as you want - forever at no extra cost!

Students cover the stages of mitosis, including chromosome alignment and segregation. They will also learn about the cell cycle as they make two diploid daughter cells.

Students can then carry out the stages of meiosis, including independent assortment and crossing over, whilst creating four haploid daughter cells.

The model can be printed in colour, or in mono on coloured or white paper.

Includes full colour Powerpoint class presentation!

Takes about 20 minutes to make the model.

Dimensions: largest chromosome 12cm/5in long.
