In this topic, we are going to show you how to build a Mitosis and meiosis model at home for your science project or exhibitions.
This homemade science experiment is done using materials like cardboard, white, color papers and hot glue gun which is easily available at home at low cost.
Mitosis Vs meiosis
Animal cells divide and reproduce in two ways Mitosis and Meiosis. Mitosis will have two identical daughters (diploid) cells. Whereas Meiosis will have four sex cells
Phases of mitosis
Mitosis is mainly used for almost all of the human body’s cell division. It is used to replace old and worn-out cells with new cells during development throughout our life.

In this video, we will show steps by step video instructions on how to build Mitosis and meiosis model at home easy way.
First, take medium rectangular shape cardboard and draw a 5 cm circle with the help of a compass and cut it with the help of scissor.
Similarly, draw one more 5 cm circles and cut it out. Take another cardboard and draw a 4 cm circle with the help of a compass and cut it with the help of scissor.
Similarly, draw two circles and cut them out.
Take another cardboard and draw a 3 cm circle with the help of a compass and cut it with the help of scissor.
Similarly, draw five circles and cut them out.
Take medium rectangular shape cardboard and draw a capsule shape and cut it out with scissors as shown in the video.
Similarly, create one more capsule shape and cut it out. Take a yellow color paper and place cardboard circle and trace it out and cut it out.
Next, paste the yellow circle on the cardboard with the help of fevicol and trace the border with a sketch pen.
Follow the same steps for all the circles of 5 cm, 4 cm, 3 cm, and 2 capsule shapes.
Take a red color paper and draw small multiple rectangles pieces and cut it out.
Similarly, create multiple rectangular pieces from blue color paper. Stick red and blue rectangular pieces to form multiple pairs.
Next take red, blue color paper and create multiple capsule shapes. Glue all the yellow color circles with red, blue and capsule shapes as shown in the video.
Take two capsule shapes and draw semi arch in them and stick blue, red rectangles inside them as shown in the video with the help of fevicol.
Next, stick all the circles and capsule shapes on a large rectangular shape white color cardboard with the help of hot glue and label the various parts.

Questions & Answers on mitosis and meiosis
1. What are mitosis and meiosis?
Mitosis produces two identical daughter cells whereas meiosis produces in four sex cells.
2. Why is mitosis more important than meiosis?
Mitosis helps in the replication of non-sex cells which is needed for growth and development whereas Meiosis makes the cells needed for sexual reproduction to occur.
Mitosis and meiosis model helps students to learn various stages of cell division in humans and as well as how to make it with easily available materials at home.
