                  Word Grid for Comparison of Mitosis and Meiosis


   1. Complete the word grid below by writing the word “mitosis” or “meiosis” in the
      blank adjacent to the statement that properly fits the process.

DESCRIPTION                                          MITOSIS or MEIOSIS
a. involves one division cycle
b. functions in growth and repair
c. daughter cells are haploid
d. initiated in germ cells
e. completed when two daughter cells are formed
f. involves two division cycles
g. daughter cells are diploid
h. daughter cells have one chromosome from
    each homologous pair
i. completed when four daughter cells are formed
j. insures genetic continuity (each generation is
   genetically identical)
k. insures genetic variation (each generation is not
   genetically identical)


   2. Write a summary statement about the major differences between mitosis and
      meiosis. Why is each process important to the continuation of living species?
