Understanding the stages of meiosis 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. 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.

Ever wish learning meiosis was as easy as folding socks?
With the ChromoSock™ Meiosis Classroom Kit (item #214810), students model the behavior of chromosomes during meiosis and touch on concepts such as nondisjunction. The Modeling Mendel's Laws Classroom Kit (item #214812) takes students with an understanding of meiosis further by having them model meiosis with an eye to more-advanced topics, such as independent assortment and segregation of alleles. Whether you are looking for an introductory- or advanced-meiosis activity for your classroom, ChromoSocks can engage your students and positively impact their understanding of these key concepts. Each classroom kit is designed for 32 students working in pairs.

 
 
 
 
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 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 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 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 Easy way to teach Mendel's laws This is a great activity to teach students about meiosis, misconceptions & Mendel's Laws. There are so many different activities that you can present to students using this kit!! It is a MUST for teaching meiosis & genetics!!

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 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.
