  • All right students, our field trip to view the new movie, How Cells Divide, is starting!
  • In the stage of Interphase, the cell carried out normal life activities. Towards the end of the stage, it's DNA divides.
  • Yeah! But don't forget about how spindle fibers form in prophase. They come from the centrioles.
  • So, in prophase the chromosomes form, and they have two chromatids, that are held together by centromeres?
  • Spindle fibers
  • Chromosomes
  • centrioles
  • So... what happens next in metaphase?
  • Well, the chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell, and the spindle fibers attach themselves to the chromosomes.
  • Alright, so anaphase. The chromatids are pulled away from each other, right?
  • Totally!
  • Yes! But don't forget that the membrane starts to pinch, in order for the cell to start physically dividing.
  • Okay, so now in telophase, a nuclear membrane forms around the chromosomes. Then the chromosomes become strands of DNA again.
  • Cytokinesis in the final stage. The cytoplasm finally splits, and we are left with two genetically identical daughter cells!
  • Wow! Cell division is very complicated!
  • That's for sure!
