Understanding and articulating Mendel's laws have always been challenging for students. What if those tasks were as easy as doing laundry? Our ChromoSocks activities are built with that concept in mind by having students use custom-sewn socks to mimic chromosomes. Modeling meiosis has never been easier, and this intermediate activity can engage your students and positively impact their understanding of these key concepts.

Ever wish learning meiosis was as easy as folding socks?

These specialty socks, made in the US, are different sizes, lengths, and colors to help demonstrate the differences between chromosomes and the genetic information they carry. The Modeling Mendel's Laws Classroom Kit takes students with an understanding of meiosis further by having them:

  • Model Mendel's law of segregation
  • Model Mendel's law of independent assortment
  • Review the process of meiosis
  • Use alleles to predict phenotype
    • This classroom kit is designed for 32 students working in pairs.

  • This item is only available from Carolina Biological Supply Company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for genetics Used these in my upper-level genetics course and modified it for use in my intro biology course. Great way to visualize the chromosomes, alleles, and Mendel's laws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool for modeling Meiosis and Mendel's laws I learned of this product at the 2014 NABT conference. I felt this Modeling was very good for determining student misconceptions and understanding. I followed the protocol slightly differently with doing the modeling as a class first, then allowing the students to work in groups of 4. Their assessment was a verbal explanation using the socks to explain meiosis, nondisjunction, mendel's laws, haploid and diploid, and I added crossing over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mendel's Genetics in a new way. Who would have thought you could use socks to teach Mendelian genetics? This kit will help you do just that. Also included is the Teacher Resource guide that takes you every step of the way as you introduce your students to genetics and let them "fold" their way to understanding. Awesome activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool for teaching Mendel's Laws! These socks do a wonderful job illustrating Mendel's laws! Segregation and Assortment are more easily grasped when the students can manipulate the socks to explain the laws.
