Mitosis Cupcakes

Here is a good video about Mitosis.

This was a really simple activity, but a fun review after learning about mitosis. We were inspired by this picture here. I put the children into teams (one older and one younger child together) and each team had to show each step of mitosis on a cupcake "cell". We used colored frosting in a plastic bag with the corner cut off to pipe on the yellow frosting, and we used chocolate sprinkles to make the chromosomes. (I guess the middle two steps are kind of a zoomed-in view of just the nucleus, really.)

Everyone especially liked the splitting cell in telophase. It does look especially cute, for some reason.
