Product Details
Grades 9–12. Introduce students to asexual and sexual reproduction, the basics of chromosome structure, karyotyping, and genetic disorders. Students will:

  • Compare traits of asexual and sexual reproduction
  • Explore human chromosomal disorders
  • Investigate normal male and female human karyotypes

Students begin by exploring asexual reproduction in several live specimens along with prepared microscope slides and informative self-study cards. They progress to manipulating magnetic chromosome replicas to discover chromosome structure and how chromosomes are arranged in a human karyotype.
