Go here if you need to download "Windows Movie Maker" for your windows XP or Vista computer (check with your parents before downloading and installing any programs):

Go here if you would like to download "Photo Story" a movie making program for PC's that only works with still images (check with your parents before downloading and installing any programs):

This fun game takes what we are learning a step further and breaks the cell cycle into more parts (gap 1, synthesis, gap 2, and mitosis). Give it a try!

Go to this site to learn all there is to know about DNA and Heredity.
old version

Check out "Cells Alive" web page for a bunch of information on cells including "The Cell Cycle" and "Mitosis" (notes: The cell cyle on this site is broken up into smaller portions and "replication" - the copying of DNA is called "synthesis". Also the mitosis animation breaks "prophase" into "prophase" and metaprophase" because so much happens in this phase).

This site has some real micrographs (microscope pictures) of actual cells going through each stage of the cell cycle. (note: This page includes "interphase" with "mitosis", but most consider interphase to be separate from "mitosis")

Here are two great links for learning about DNA. Check them out for added learning and practice!

You can use this link to create professional looking graphs for any labs you do in my class.

If you are interested in learning more about Scanning Electron Microscopes or SEM's go to this page.

This page has an animation showing different things on the head of a pin at different magnifications. Very fun! This page is part of a bigger site that covers cells in detail.

This is a great site if you are interested in pictures taken through microscopes. Awesome, creepy shots of insects and other organisms. Some are taken through a compound light microscope, others through a scanning or transmission electron microscope (see if you can figure out which one was used).
