Meiosis Poker

Description: Meiosis Poker is a simple lab designed to reinforce a student’s understanding of meiosis. This lab can be performed in one class period (30+ minutes) and only requires a deck of playing cards for each lab group.

Key Ideas:
1. Meiosis reduces the number of chromosomes in each cell.
2. Although each cell contains chromosomes which control the same genes, each one is genetically different.

This lab serves as a tactile, visual reminder of concepts that have previously been taught. It is recommended that students be allowed to access resource material during this lab. Students will be challenged to apply their knowledge of meiosis through increasingly difficult questions that require application and analysis.
