Interphase is the first step, during this the cell carries out its normal functions, but towards the end it duplicates its DNA

Prophase is the second step, part of mitosis. During prophase the DNA starts to condense into chromosomes. The nucleus starts to fade away. Small organelles called centrioles appear and create spindle fibers.
Metaphase is the third stage, but the second in mitosis. In metaphase all the chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell. The centrioles move to separate sides of the cell. M = middle.
What happens during metaphase?
Anaphase is the fourth stage, but the third in mitosis. During anaphase the spindle fibers pull at one part of the DNA and breaks the DNA. The part that is being pulled goes to one end of the cell.
What happens during anaphase?
Telophase is the fifth stage, but the fourth stage in mitosis. During telophase two nuclei form and hold the DNA. The cell membrane starts to pinch in.
What happens during telophase?
During cytokinesis - the last stage in the cycle - the cytoplasm slits. Once split the one cell turn into two identical daughter cells.
