Storyboard Text

  • Woah! Those lolipops are huge! What makes them grow so much?
  • I'm not sure what makes lollipops grow, but humans grow because of cell division!
  • Ugh, why does it even matter?
  • Well, it matters because without cell division, we wouldn't develop, repair, or grow!
  • Let's break it down - the first step on cell division is interphase
  • Nucleus with DNA
  • Spindle fibers (centrioles)
  • Interphase is when the cell grows and carries out normal life activities and the DNA duplicates. It's like a party!
  • Chromosomes
  • Awesome!
  • The second step is prophase - this is when the DNA forms into chromosomes.
  • The spindle fibers from the centrioles also spread out on each side of the cell.
  • Hey, down here! This is also when the spindle fibers attach to the centromere
  • The next step is metaphase. This is when the chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell.
  • The fourth step is anaphase. The paired chromatids separate and move to opposite sides of the cell. Spindle fibers help pull them apart.
  • Woah, cells are really big!!
  • Welcome to Cell Division class! Today we are learning about telophase!
  • Telophase is the fifth step in the cell cycle, a new nuclear membrane forms around the separated chromatids. The cell begins to pinch, and the chromatids unravel into loose strands.
  • Did I draw it right?
  • Take a bow, because you are now on the final step of the cell cycle- cytokinesis!
  • The products of cytokinesis are 2 genetically identical daughter cells each with a nucleus.
  • Oh, I get why it matters now!
