Part 1 of this activity asks students to use Oreos (Cells) and sprinkles (chromosomes) to model mitosis. They then copy their models to paper and write a brief explanation of each Oreo and answer analysis questions. Part 2 asks students to watch a brief video of the relationship between mitosis and cancer, and answer
Mitosis is a form of cell division, which produces two daughter cells. Each of these two cells possesses equal number and similar kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth. In case of actively dividing animal cell, the entire process takes one hour to complete.
