Activity Overview


In this activity, students will create a storyboard that models the stages of meiosis from start to finish. Students should be sure to provide a description of what happens at each stage along with a visual representation. For an alternate activity, print out the example storyboard, cut the cells out, and have students put the steps in the correct order.

STAGEDESCRIPTION
Prophase I Chromosomes condense and spindle fibers start to form. The chromosomes pair up with the homologue partner. The homologous pairs then swap fragments in a process known as crossing over.
Metaphase I Spindle fibers attach the chromosome pairs and move them to line up on a line known as the metaphase plate.
Anaphase I The cell elongates as the homologous parts are pulled apart by the spindle fibers. The sister chromatids stay together.
Telophase I Two new nuclei form and the spindle fibers break down. The cells become separate through a process known as cytokinesis.
Prophase II Chromosomes condense and spindle fibers start to form.
Metaphase II Spindle fibers attach to the chromosomes. The chromosomes are lined up along the center of the cell, at a point known as the metaphase plate.
Anaphase II The cell elongates as the sister chromatids are pulled apart by the spindle fibers.
Telophase II Two new nuclei form from each haploid cell. The spindle fibers break down. The gametes separate from each other through a process known as cytokinesis.
