Notes to the Teacher: to top
* A game board, see below, (duplicate, enlarge,
cut in half, and attach to both side of an 8-1/2
x 14 inch manila folder)
* A die
* Four place markers per player (coins, buttons, painted tops from bottle of white-out, bottle
caps, etc.) 16 place markers per game
* Four different sets of 10 to 15 colored question/answer cards (corresponding to colors on
the game board) Duplicate the questions/answers and attach to index cards.
* Instructions for the game (also laminated)
2. Each player should select a playing name for him/herself (the Dragons,
Tigers, Monkeys, or
the Rats) and 4 place markers. They should place one of their markers on the START space.
3. Each player rolls the die one time to determine the order of play.
The person who rolls the
highest number goes first, the other players then go in a clockwise fashion.
4. Cards are placed face down in separate color piles after they are shuffled.
5. The object of the game is to get all 4 of your markers to the FINISH
space. You can only start
a new marker after your previous marker has reached the FINISH space. The first player to
get all of their markers to the FINISH space wins or those with the most markers there de-
pending on the amount of playing time.
6. During a turn, a player rolls the die and moves that number of spaces
on the game board.
When a player lands on a colored space, they must answer the question from the top of the
question/answer card pile that corresponds to the color on the game board. When they land on
any other space, they must follow the directions listed on that space. For example, lose a turn
or move back 3 spaces. The player's turn continues with a new throw of the die until they
either answer a question incorrectly or draws a LOSE A TURN card from one of the piles of
7. Players continue to move around the board until they've completed
one outer circuit of the
game board and are back to START. They then move up the center area to the FINISH space.
8. Players can only land on the FINISH space with an exact throw of
the die, and must wait
until they have that number.
|Question: Embryonic development begins with fertilization. Describe
what occurs during the process of fertilization.
Answer: Fertilization occurs when the nucleus of a sperm cell fuses with the nucleus of an egg cell.
|Question: During embryonic development cells not only increase
in number but also undergo differentiation. Describe what occurs during
Answer: During differentiation cells become specialized and are organized the into tissues and organs of the organism.
|Question: After fertilization takes place, within seconds, a
fertilization membrane forms around the egg cell. What is the function
of the fertilization membrane?
Answer: The fertilization membrane, along with other changes of the egg's surface, prevents the entry of additional sperm cells.
|Question: Fertilization is followed by cleavage. What is cleavage?
Answer: Cleavage is a series of rapid cell divisions that produce a ball of cells from the zygote.
|Question: The eggs of most animals have a definite polarity.
How does the animal pole differ from the vegetal pole at the opposite end
of the egg?
Answer: The vegetal pole contains the yolk which impedes cell division, therefore, most cleavage of the organism occurs at the animal pole.
