  61.   Replicating Controversy
...ain their findings to their "colleagues." Assign each group one of the following aspects of cloning-related topics to research using all available classroom resources (you might wish to print out these group topics and distribute them to each group): Group 1: Sexual vs. Asexual Reproduction What is mitosis? What are "autosomal" cells? What are some examples of organisms that reproduce asexually? What is meiosis? What are "gametes" or "sex cells"? How does a fertilized egg cell divide? What are some examples of organisms that reproduce sexually? Create a diagram of the chromosome structures used for both mito...

  62.   Cells 1: Make a Model Cell
...earning activity in which students also construct a giant cell model. Cell Observation is a guided lab for students to examine cells under a microscope. Cell Organelles can be used as an alternate assessment. It requires students to collect electron micrographs of cells. The Science NetLinks lesson Mitosis introduces cell division. In this lesson, students create a physical representation of mitosis on posterboard, and then write and perform a skit to show the process of mitosis. Created :10/20/2001

...mecium. Some may say that the boundary must include enough of the surrounding medium to provide food and a watery environment for the paramecium. Systems within the system of the paramecium can be identified. For example, an atom can be considered a system. Students may mention the symmetry seen in mitosis as the paramecium is dividing by binary fission. If one of the parts of the paramecium wears out, it may not be able to move (cilia) or get rid of water (contractile vacuole) or divide (nucleus). If this system stops working, the paramecium would be dead. If the paramecium contains excess water, it will re...

...their own pace. Five stations are set up around the classroom, and students move around to all of the different stations to investigate independently or with peers. Different learning styles are addressed through the use of microscopes, technology, and hands-on manipulatives. Keywords: cell cycle, mitosis, interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, plant cells, animal cells, cell division, chromosomes Body: 1. Set up a variety of stations around the classroom. At each station put a folder containing specific instructions and enough copies of the activity for each student. The procedure for each s...

...tains the chromosome made of DNA -- the twisted, double strands of deoxyribonucleic acid that carry genetic information. Genes are made up of portions of these DNA strands. Each of us has 23 pairs of chromosomes and more than 100,000 genes. Cells reproduce through cell division, or a process called mitosis. The cell divides into two identical cells, each containing the same genetic information stored in the original chromosome. With each cell division, a protective cap on the end of the chromosome, called a telomere, gets shorter. After about 50 divisions, the telomere is so short that the cell stops dividin...
