  • Sam was playing soccer outside with his friends
  • All of a sudden, he tripped and scraped his elbow!
  • Ouch!
  • Will my scrape heal Doctor?
  • Yes it will because of the Cell Cycle...
  • During the first step of the Cell Cycle, called Interphase, the cell grows and your DNA makes new chromosomes, which are like groups of DNA.
  • The next step is Prophase, where the wall of the cell starts to dissolve, also web-like strings start to from; these are called spindle fibers.
  • The third step is called Metaphase. where all the chromosomes get in a line, and the stringy spindle fibers attach to the middle of the chromosomes, called the Centromere.
  • The fourth step is called Anaphase. This is when the entire centromere dissolves. Then the two halves of the chromosomes are pulled apart and dragged by the spindle fibers towards the opposite ends of the cell.
  • The fifth step is called Telophase. The spindle fibers dissolve as well as the centrioles. The nuclear membrane starts to form a shell around the groups of chromosomes and the outer cell membrane starts to pinch in at the middle.
  • The final step is called Cytokenesis. This is when the cytoplasm splits apart and 2 new daughter cells are formed.
  • Now that Sam's elbow is all healed up, he can play soccer with his friends again!
