Modeling Meiosis

We reviewed problems 1, 2, 8, and 9 from yesterday’s Punnett Square worksheet at the start of class (work shown at the bottom of the post).  Next, we watched the Amoeba Sisters video about meiosis (below) and students worked through a guided worksheet.  After the video, students had the remainder of class to use the Inside the Cell books to help them complete the worksheet and to investigate the processes of independent assortment and crossing over.

Students then had the remainder of class to complete the worksheet, complete the meosis reading assignment from last Thursday, and to get both assignments checked off in Illuminate.
