  5. 5. Prophase <ul><li>“ P repare to Divide” </li></ul><ul><li>Chromatin condenses to form chromosomes </li></ul><ul><li>Centrioles migrate to opposite poles </li></ul><ul><li>Spindle fibers form and attach near centromere </li></ul><ul><li>Nuclear envelope disappears </li></ul>
  6. 6. Metaphase <ul><li>“ Chromosomes in the M iddle” </li></ul><ul><li>Chromosomes line up across the middle </li></ul><ul><li>Spindle fibers connect centromere to centriole </li></ul>
  7. 7. Anaphase <ul><li>“ Chromosomes A part” </li></ul><ul><li>Sister chromosomes separate at centromere </li></ul><ul><li>Move to opposite poles </li></ul>
