Oreo Mitosis Lab

Mrs. Amber Stephens' life science classes recently completed a fun oreo mitosis lab.  Students used oreos and frosting to create models of mitosis (cell division).  Each group of three students were given six oreos to illustrate the six phases of mitosis.  In addition, students summarized the major events taking place during each phase and detailed the role each cell organelle plays in the process.  The best part is that the lab clean-up was a breeze.  Once their models were checked, the students were allowed to eat everything!
