Understanding the stages of meiosis and articulating Mendel's laws have always been challenging for students. What if those tasks were as easy as doing laundry? Our ChromoSock® activities are built with that concept in mind by having students use custom-sewn socks to mimic chromosomes. These specialty socks, made in the US, are different sizes, lengths, and colors to help demonstrate the differences between chromosomes and the genetic information they carry.

Understanding the stages of meiosis and articulating Mendel's laws have always been challenging for students. What if those tasks were as easy as doing laundry? Our ChromoSock® activities are built with that concept in mind by having students use custom-sewn socks to mimic chromosomes. These specialty socks, made in the US, are different sizes, lengths, and colors to help demonstrate the differences between chromosomes and the genetic information they carry. With the ChromoSock® Meiosis Classroom Kit (item #214810), students model the behavior of chromosomes during meiosis and touch on concepts such as nondisjunction. The Modeling Mendel's Laws Classroom Kit (item #214812) takes students further in their understanding of meiosis by having them model meiosis with an eye to more advanced topics, such as independent assortment and segregation of alleles. The Modeling, Meiosis, and Mendel Classroom Kit (item #214813) takes meiosis and other advanced topics to the next level as students model meiosis while focusing on Mendel’s laws, investigating the formation of gametes, fertilization, and the possible combination of alleles from fertilization.

Whether you are looking for an introductory- or advanced-level meiosis activity for your classroom, ChromoSock® specialty socks are sure to engage students and positively impact their understanding of key concepts. All 3 kits are designed for 32 students working in pairs.
