Students macerate, stain, and mount specially grown root tips (provided in the kit). Then, they locate and diagram DNA in the cells. Finally, the students are asked to observe and draw the various stages of cell division. This enables the students to develop a better understanding of the hereditary material in plant chromosomes.
