A Level Biology: Meiosis ActivityQuick View

A Level Biology: Meiosis Activity

A cut and stick and cloze activity aimed at A level students. The activity is designed so that students can learn and identify the key stages of meiosis and describe what happens in each of the main stages. The cloze activity allows students to become more familiar with the key terminology associated with this topic. This activity can be completed by students independently as all instructions are given on the sheets. Ideal for both teaching the topic and also as a revision aide. The activity has been provided in both an A3 and A4 format to allow for printing in either size. I would advise to print in A3 if possible as it keeps all the stages of meiosis on one sheet and makes it easier for the student to compare the two different stages of meiosis. A completed answer sheet is provided for the teacher.
