An innovative way of teaching mitosis, meiosis and the cell cycle!

Students make chromosomes out of the colourful high quality parts. By making colour coded chromosomes, it reminds the students about their origin. Maternal chromosomes have pink sugars and paternal chromosomes have blue!

For use with 6 groups of students. Time required: 30 minutes.

What are Genetic Puzzles?

For mitosis your students will:

  • synthesise DNA
  • align homologous chromosomes
  • segregate chromosomes
  • learn the stages of a cell cycle

Mitosis produces 2 identical diploid cells to the starting cell.

For meiosis your students will:

  • align homologous chromosomes
  • cross over the DNA so blue and pink get mixed
  • independently assort chromosomes

Meiosis produces 4 different haploid cells to each other and the starting cell.

All components are reusable. Includes full instructions and lesson plan.
