Meiosis in 60 s
Here's an explanation of Twitter in 60 seconds:
Can you explain the process of meiosis in 60 s?
Earlier this semester, we learned about mitosis, a process used by all cells to reproduce asexually, and for growth, repair & replacement of damaged cells in multicellular organisms.
Mitosis produces identical daughter cells...which is great for the processes identified above but isn't good for producing the variety a species requires to be able to adapt and evolve in a changing world.
Meiosis is used for sexual reproduction... can you explain it in 60 seconds?

IB Biology Guide
Your video should address the understandings in the IB Biology Guide topics 3.3 and 10.1.
- meiosis I
- meiosis II
- crossing over/formation of chiasmata
- processes leading to genetic variation
Don't worry about applications and skills... we'll address those in class.
Create a video that effectively explains meiosis in 60 s ± 5 s!
- be creative! use drawings, photos, plasticine, pipe cleaners or whatever helps you best explain
- if using photos, please choose those available for use through Creative Commons licences (but still credit them at the end of your video!)
- you may record the video, or create using PowToon or another app
- Post your video to YouTube on December 19th, and share the link with the class using ManageBac or leave a comment below.
- If you're on Twitter, tweet a link using the hashtag: #IBBioVideos
