This set of 73 enrichment, reinforcement, and review task cards for your lessons on cell division will ensure that your students have mastered the concepts of mitosis and meiosis. Both printable and digital versions are included. Questions cover the limits to cell growth, the stages of the cell cycle, the phases of both mitosis and meiosis, chromosome number in gametes, differences between sexual and asexual reproduction, and much more. See detailed list of topics and concepts below.

Both printable and digital versions of this resource are included. The student handouts and task cards can be printed or used in the paperless digital format in your Google Drive, Google Classroom, Microsoft OneDrive, or similar.

This set of 73 task cards on Cell Division covers the following concepts and topics:

  • Limits to Cell Growth: Reasons why cells divide, surface area to volume ratio in cells. Students will calculate the surface area to volume ratio in cells and determine which cells are more efficient in moving materials across the cell membrane.
  • Introduction to Cell Division: Definition, mother cells, daughter cells, replication, number of chromosomes in cells, mitosis, cytokinesis, chromatids, sister chromatids, centromeres.
  • The Cell Cycle: Definition, five phases of the cell cycle, G1 phase, S phase, G2 phase, Mitosis, and Cytokinesis.
  • Preparations for Cell Division: The events that occur during Interphase (G1 phase, S phase, G2 phase). Students will label structures of a cell that is in interphase.
  • The Stages of Mitosis: Prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, and cytokinesis. Students will label structures of cells in each phase. The events of each phase are thoroughly covered.
  • Special structures involved in cell division: Centrioles, mitotic spindle, microtubules, sister chromatids, centromeres.
  • Cytokinesis in Plant and Animal Cells: Definition, cleavage furrow, and cell plate.
  • The Importance and Result of Mitosis in Cells
  • Regulation of the Cell Cycle
  • Differences between asexual and sexual reproduction.
  • Advantages and Disadvantages of Sexual and Asexual Reproduction.
  • Cell Division and Chromosome Number: Homologous chromosomes, diploid, haploid, chromosome number in gametes.
  • Phases of Meiosis
  • The Importance and Result of Meiosis in Cells
  • Crossing Over During Meiosis: Definition, tetrads, exchange of genetic information, variation in the offspring.
  • Comparison of the events of Mitosis and Meiosis
