 We have three 6th grade Science classes and two 8th grade Science classes blogging here from the Pacific Northwest in Chimacum, WA! Sixth graders are learning a bit about Mt Saint Helens, environmental science through fresh water ecology, and physical science this year. Eighth graders are learning about life science this year. Please join us as we learn Science by exploring our world. Mr. G's Blog Mr. G's Class Facebook Page

 Article posted May 9, 2012 at 07:10 PM GMT • comment • Reads 742 my team did an experiment on which color a snail would go to if they had the choice. so we set up a box with orange, green, blue, and yellow colored paper. we covered the middle with white out in a circle, and we put the snail in the circle to see which color the snail went to. he/she didn't go to orange, went to blue twice, green once, and yellow twice.

The difference between Mitosis and Meiosis is that Meiosis is a sexual reproduction of cells and Mitosis is not. Meiosis is a unique type of cell that mak gametes with not as many chromosomes. The opposita process would be syngamy or fertalization, a very different organism that has unique difrent ither parent is made. The sygote divides and grown to form an embryo which turns into a young organism. Mitosis is where chromosomes are copied and split. It starts with prophase. Prophase is when the DNA duplicates. They became exactly the same like a copy in. eres metophase which is when the DNA duplicates and face eachother. On the opposite sides. Anaphase is next and is when the daughter chromosomes move away from eachother to opposite sides of the cell. Last is telephase and thats where all cells split to form nuclei.

The cell expands and its plasma membrane grows inward, then the cell splits. The cell divides and creates two sister cells. Those cells are able to work becase the mother cell gives them everything they need to produce and survive. Q2. Interphase: Is the longest perod of the complte cell cycle during which the DNA replicates, the centrioles divide, and the protiens are actively produced. Prophase: During the first mitotic stage, the nucleolus fades and condenses into chromosomes. Each chromosome comprises two chromatids. Microtubules of a cytoskleton Prometaphase: The nucler envelope breaks down and there is no longer a nucleus that you can recognize. Some mitotc spindle fibers elongate from the centrosomes and attach tp kinetochores, protein bunches at the centromer region on the chromosoms where sister chromatids are joined. Metphase: The tension applied by spindle fibers aligns chromosomes in one plane at the center of the cell. Anaphase: Spindle fibers shorten, the kinetochores seperate, and the chromatids are pulled apat and begin moving to the cell poles.

The elodia is independant and doesnt need the paramicia, or amobia to live on its own, but the paramicia and amobia needs other cells to survive. so you can tell because they need oher cells to survive.
