Students can truly understand mitosis and meiosis as they build their own chromosomes using pop beads and magnetic centromere connectors. Not only does the activity allow students to manipulate chromosomes through various stages of cellular division, it adds a layer of complexity by including events such as crossing over and chromosome aberrations. Kit includes teacher's manual and reproducible student guide.

Learning the phases of mitosis and meiosis isn't always easy for students. This chromosome simulation activity removes some of the confusion by taking chromosomes off the page and putting them in students' hands. Students get an opportunity to gain a deep understanding of mitosis and meiosis as they build their own chromosomes using pop beads and magnetic centromere connectors. Not only does the activity allow students to manipulate chromosomes through various stages of cellular division, it adds a layer of complexity by including events such as crossing over and chromosome aberrations. Kit includes teacher's manual and reproducible student guide. For replacement or bulk beads order Pop-It Beads Set (item #171112) and Magnetic Centromeres (item #171100).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Engaging tool to teach but cheap product Used at the college level to teach mitosis/meiosis. Had an older version of this product that works great, bought this edition and the magnets are for this kit only. The magnets and beads are not compatible with any other versions of the chromosome kits. The beads are cheaply made and the "male portion" of the beads to stick in the holes tears off after a few uses. Could be a good product, just lower standards.
