MITOSIS ANIMATION WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN? Basic animation:http://wormclassroom.org/files/worm/CellDivision.mov More advanced terms, faster-paced, and with jazz!http://wormclassroom.org/files/worm/CellDivision.swf
Cells in different phases of the cell cycle, some in mitosis. You can identify these. Allium (onion)

FROM 1 to 100 “WORMS”The “worm”, Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans), is anematode commonly used for genetic research becauseit is simple, has a short life-span (reproducesquickly), and is easy to cultivate. This nematode “worm” is about the size of a comma in your textbook: 1 mm.
I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS, TOO!• HOW MANY CELLS DO WE HUMANS HAVE?• WHAT HAPPENS IF MITOSIS DOESN’T STOP?• WHY DO ADULTS STOP
