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.

Mitosis Lab Stations Activity Learning Objectives

1. Identify and sequence cells in various stages of mitosis.

2. Compare and contrast mitosis in animal and plant cells.

3. Evaluate the role of proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in controlling the rate of cell division.

4. Discuss the problems and limitations with curing cancer.

Science Skills Station

Students will observe dividing cells in an onion root tip. Students will compare the number of cells that are in interphase compared to cells in the stages of cell division so to make inferences about the time spent in each part of the cell cycle.

Narrative Station

Students will read texts about cell division by mitosis and the similarities and differences in cell division by mitosis in animal and plant cells. Students will also watch videos of animal and plant cells dividing so to compare how mitosis occurs in each type of cell.

Assessment Station

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

Problem-Solving Station

Students will evaluate the role of proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in controlling cell growth and division at this station. Students will identify problems that occur when the proteins coded by these genes do not work properly and discuss limitations in the ability to solve these problems. If time allows, students will complete an extension activity to consider the problems and limitations in curing cancer.

Synthesis/Summary Project

Students will have a choice of 11 projects. Refer to the SNAPs Lab Stations Best Practices and Setup Guide for directions and suggestions on how to conduct the project.

NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS

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