Teaching meiosis presents challenges for both
teaching and learning because it is an abstract concept that
requires visual and tactile models for most students to
exchange process of maternal and paternal alleles during
cross-over is especially difficult without such a reference.
A lot of time was spent designing, testing and refining
this kit in classrooms to meet your needs.
This kit will make teaching and learning meiosis much more
enjoyable for you, just as it has for others.
The kit includes:
Teacher Demonstration Models: Thirty
large chromosomes arranged in five colorful sets that can be seen
on your board from the back of your classroom.
Each set consists of a
maternal and paternal homolog and four sister chromatids
Alleles and parental lineage are clearly identified.
The fifth set has removable alleles for demonstrating
Student Models: Students carry out
teacher directed assignments at their desk using their own smaller
sets of chromosomes. There
are no consumables so the kit can be used over and over again.
Instructional CD and Teacher Manual: We
will walk you thru using the kit for the first time in an easy,
familiar and pictorial slide show fashion. Dont worry if this
is your first time teaching meiosis because absolutely everything
you need is in the kit. Recommended
student activity and assessment options are also included. We even
provide a student activity sheet that you can copy.
This is a complete package that makes the
complex biological process of meiosis come alive in your
classroom. It makes
teaching fun! Shipping weight 7 lbs., dimensions 21 x 19 x
