Hands-on Mitosis, Meiosis and Fertilization Activity

I have included a picture of the rollosomes, as well as improved instructions for making rollosomes, on pages 3-4 of the newly revised Teacher Preparation Notes (available at /exchange/waldron/mitosis). Yes, for seven student groups, you will need four sets of eight rollosomes. As shown in the chart on page 4 of the Teacher Preparation Notes, you need four pairs of homologous rollosomes for each pair of student groups.
