These 9 "Mitosis Chat!" lab stations will ensure that your students have mastered the concepts of cell division. Students will work together to solve a problem, complete a task, and /or carry out a small experiment at each of the 9 stations. I use the word “chat” to emphasize to my students that they are to work together and have a productive discussion at each lab station in order to maximize their understanding and mastery of the concepts being covered.

What is the purpose of this activity?
This particular chat activity covers cell division. Students will explore the limits to cell size, learn to recognize the stages of mitosis and meiosis, determine the result of each type of cell division, and think about why mitosis and meiosis occur in different cells. Students will compare mitosis in plant and animal cells and use a simple calculation to determine how much time a cell spends in each stage. Students will explore the cell cycle, and crossing over. These lab stations will ensure that your students understand and master the concepts involved in cell division.
Do just a few lab stations or do them all! All materials are completely editable.
