meiosis with pool noodles

Mitosis and meiosis using pool noodles. I did these at a NMSI training this summer and went home and made the chromosomes right away. I can hardly wait to get to mitosis & meiosis so we can try them out!

Awesome YouTube video of students dancing out mitosis. So funny and engaging! Prophase-cytokinesis!

I will show my students this video and maybe one day try to orchestrate a mitosis dance in my future schools' Biology department.

Awesome edible "phospholipid bilayer" activity to help my students remember the structure and key parts of a typical cell membrane. Each student receives a snack bag with 8 marshmallows, 2 two inch sections of pull & peel licorice, and 1 four inch piece of a red vine licorice (I used grape flavored red vines this year as the "Purple" transport "Protein".) After completing a worksheet about the functions & key parts of a cell membrane, we each assemble one & pair share about each part

I created this edible "phospholipid bilayer" activity to help my students remember the structure and key parts of a typical cell membrane.

This is a class project we did to learn about the plasma membrane and its parts. The phospholipids were made of a balloon, two straws and masking tape to hold the tails onto the balloon. They were tied together on fishing string, glued together with rubber cement, then hung from the ceiling. The other parts were cut from heavy paper.

This is a class project we did to learn about the plasma membrane. <-- such a genius idea!

An Engineering and Inquiry Lab to teach mitosis-- looks really exciting! Can't wait to try this out next time I teach cell division!

Teacher, author & homeschooling mom shares lessons that encourage inquiry. Resources for those implementing the “STEM Student Research Handbook.
