Hello Class! Today we will be learning about the cell cycle. Let's start with Interphase! Interphase is the part of the cell cycle where the cell carries out normal life activities. The cell also grows in size and DNA is duplicated during this phase.
Don't worry the fun isn't over yet. Next we begin a part of the cell cycle called mitosis. The first phase of mitosis is prophase. The chromosomes form, the membrane around the nucleus disappears and spindle fibers from the centrioles start to stretch across the cell.
After metaphase, the chromosomes line up in the middle and spindle fibers attach to the centromere of the chromosome!
Next class, after metaphase, it is my favorite part of the cell cycle. It's anaphase! During anaphase, the chromatids of each cell separate into separate chromosomes and are pulled to opposite sides of the cell.
