Rated 5 out of 5 by from My students love learning with ChromoSocks! I love this kit and so do my students. I also use it for mitosis and Mendelian genetics. The socks are a tactile way for the students to study the movement of the chromosomes. The kit is also useful for demonstrating non-disjunction and the implications based on whether it happens in anaphase I or anaphase II. The company that created the kit has an excellent reputation for developing high quality educational products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ChromoSocks--Finally a way students can see Meiosis This activity, although simple in concept truly allows students to see how chromosomes form tetrads then go through the segregation process in the formation of gametes. After using this kit my student finally "got it".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest way to teach meiosis! This is the easiest way to visually teach misconceptions about meiosis to students. This is the best activity I have ever seen on how to teach meiosis!! Students find it easy to see the stages and it is easy for teachers to show students stages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! This is such an awesome lab to use to reinforce mitosis! The students really benefit from having a hands-on model.
