Activity Overview


Mitosis is one process of cell division that produces two genetically identical daughter cells from one parent cell. It is the most common way cells divide. In this activity, students will create a storyboard that models the stages of mitosis 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.

Stages of Mitosis

  1. Prophase: Chromosomes condense and spindle fibers start to form.
  2. Prometaphase: The nuclear envelope starts to break down and the chromosomes finish condensing. The spindle fibers start to attach to the chromosomes.
  3. Metaphase: All the spindle fibers have been attached to the chromosomes. The chromosomes are lined up along the center of the cell, at a point known as the metaphase plate.
  4. Anaphase: The cell elongates as the sister chromatids are pulled apart by the spindle fibers.
  5. Telophase: Two new nuclei form and the spindle fibers break down.
  6. Cytokinesis: The cells pinch in the middle and split to form two new separate cells.
