Chromosomes form, the centrioles separate, the spindle begins to form
The chromosomes line up across the center of the cell
Chromatids separate into individual chromosomes and are moved apart
Chromosomes gather at opposite ends of the cell and lose their distinct shapes. Two new nuclear envelopes will form.
