This assignment allows students to compare and contrast the cellular processes of Mitotic Cell Division and Meiotic Cell Division. You can use it in the classroom with your textbook or in a computer lab as an internet activity. Be sure to change the page numbers to match your textbook. This activity supports Grade Seven California State Science Standard 1E - Students know cells divide to increase their numbers through a process of mitosis, which results
in two daughter cells with identical sets of chromosomes and Grade Seven California State Science Standard 1C - Students know the nucleus is the repository for genetic information in plant and animal cells.
