                                  Project: Cell Cycle Notebook

Introduction: You have been appointed by Study Aides Inc. to create a notebook that students can use to
learn about each stage of the cell cycle. Your notebook will contain labeled drawings for interphase,
prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase, and cytokinesis along with well-written descriptions for each


      Obtain 7 pieces of 8.5 x 11 paper. The first page will be used as a cover page and should contain
       the title “Cell Cycle Notebook” along with your name and period.

      Your Notebook must contain a labeled diagram for Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase,
       Telophase, and Cytokinesis. Labels are to be written outside of the actual illustration area and
       connected with a ruled line to the structure. Each phase will have its own page in the notebook.

      Diagrams for each phase must be hand-drawn and in color. **NOTE: Whatever EVEN number of
       chromosomes you choose for your cell to have must stay consistent throughout your notebook.

      Under the diagram, write a paragraph summarizing the major events which occur in each phase.
       Paragraphs should be well-written and descriptive enough so that someone learning about the cell
       cycle for the first time could use your notebook to study from. Use your text book, notes, and the
       internet to research the information to be included.

       Bind your notebook together! Remember: Be creative!

      Example of a Notebook page:


              nucleolus                                                       chromatin

                                                                                  Nuclear envelope

                               A cell spends ~ 90% of its
                               lifespan in interphase. This
                               phase is a period of growth and
                               DNA replication which can be
                               subdivided into 3 stages…
