Product Description
About SNAPs Lab Stations Activities
SNAPs Lab Stations Activities require students to use science, math, literacy, problem-solving and engineering skills. They are designed to enhance students' understanding of scientific concepts and help students apply scientific ideas to the real world. Each station activity promotes skills so to develop students into proficient and competent scientific thinkers.

SNAPs lab activities have five components:
Science Skills Station to develop science skill proficiency
Narrative Station to build science literacy
Assessment Station to evaluate learning and understanding
Problem-Solving Station to foster engineering design
Synthesis/Summary Project to inspire higher-order learning

A description of the activities at each station in this particular lab is detailed below.

Next Generation Science Standards
This laboratory does not address a specific Next Generation Science Standard, but it complements concepts related to other NGSS. This lab combines the three dimensions of science learning - science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts. This laboratory also makes interdisciplinary connections to STEM, Math CCSS and ELA CCSS to build the appropriate skills.

Meiosis Lab Stations Activity Learning Objectives
1. Identify and sequence the stages of meiosis.
2. Compare and contrast mitosis and meiosis.
3. Discuss the role of meiosis in sexual reproduction.
4. Explain how nondisjunction during meiosis results in abnormal daughter cells.

Science Skills Station
Students will simulate the process of meiosis at this station. They will compare this type of cell division to mitosis. Students will model independent assortment of chromosomes in order to consider the role of meiosis in genetic variation.

Narrative Station
Students will read about cell division by meiosis and analyze illustrations of the phases of meiosis I and meiosis II. Then they will watch a video about the difference between meiosis and mitosis.

Assessment Station
At this station, students will answer questions about key terms and ideas relating to meiosis. Students will have to employ lower, mid and higher order thinking skills to answer these questions.

Problem-Solving Station
Students will model nondisjunction and the problems that arise when chromosomes do not separate properly during meiosis. Students will consider how nondisjunction in gametes can lead to abnormalities in offspring.

Synthesis/Summary Project
Students will have a choice of 11 projects. Suggestions for projects that are best suited for this particular lab are included. It is up to the teacher to control this portion of the lab, and thus, the higher-order skills utilized in this activity. Refer to the SNAPs Lab Stations Best Practices and Setup Guide for directions and suggestions on how to conduct the project.
