Classroom Ideas

After watching the clip, students could role-play the process themselves. Can they improve upon the version seen in the clip? Students could then make a card sort activity to help them revise with images of each stage on one set of cards and written descriptions on the other. Making the card sort activity themselves will support their learning. After learning about meiosis, students could be asked to state the differences between the processes (crucially the number of cells produced and whether they are identical or not) in the form of a table to help them revise.
