Selective breeding–diagrammatic representation video
Mendel’s peas–the different traits Mendel observed in peas and used in crossbreeding experiments
Mendel’s experiments–a simplified but fun animation
Mendel’s experiments–a more exhaustive presentation
Mendel pea experiments interpretation of data–a text story that describes Mendel’s brilliance in interpreting his data.
Cell division (mitosis)–a video a living cell dividing.
Cell division–an animated video of mitosis
Meiosis. The cell divisions that lead to the formation of eggs or sperm–an animation video that allows you to stop and start to discuss and contrast the differences between mitosis and meiosis
Meiosis and fertilization in flowering plants–an animation. Disregard the technical terminology to have students note the basic similarity between plant reproduction and animal reproduction. That is, meiosis and fertilization (halving the chromosome number and recombining two halves in fertilization) are the same in both.
