Storyboard Description

From the moment in time where the sperm and egg cell(haploid cells) combine to where the fetus is born

Storyboard Text

  • The egg enters the fallopian tube and starts its journey towards the uterus
  • One of the millions of sperm that have been travelling towards the egg manages to penetrate it
  • The sperm loses its tail, leaving only the head (which contains the genetic material) inside the egg. Fertilisation occurs when the genetic material from the egg and sperm combine
  • As the fertilised egg (known as a zygote) continues to travel along the fallopian tube, it starts to divide and form an embryo
  • After zygote has developed into an embryo by mitosis, it develops further into a fetus
  • Baby is born after 9-12 months of pregnancy
