Subject:

Topics:
Biology, Grades 6th-8th, Mitosis, Genetics

Author:
Michelle Mahoney

Materials:
1 pack 3x3 Post-it® Super Sticky Note, fine point black marker, red and blue marker

Grade Level:
6th-8th

Estimated Time:
20-40 min


Materials

01

Remove 12 Post-it® Notes from a pad. Do not pull the notes apart in order to preserve a booklet.

02

On the top note, draw a cell (choose either plant or animal) in interphase.

03

On the second note, draw a cell (in approximately the same spot as the cell on the first page) in early prophase. Continue with the next note (#3) as middle prophase and the following note (#4) as late prophase.

04

On the fifth note (#5), draw a cell in Metaphase. Continue on the sixth note (#6) with early Anaphase and on the seventh and eighth note (#7 & #8) with middle and late Anaphase, respectively.

05

On the ninth note (#9), draw early Telophase. Again, continue on the 10th and 11th pages with middle and late Telophase. End on the 12th page with a drawing of cytokinesis, where the cell is split into two cells.

06

When all of the pictures are drawn, flip through the pages to watch your animation of a cell dividing.





07

This project can be used to supplement lessons on cells and processes that support cells. It also provides a great introduction to the topic of genetics.
