Haha, lazy for workbook questions, eh? Well here ya' go.

Punnett squares are a model for what happens during meiosis because they are an easier way to show the events that occur at meiosis.

^ so not the answer. LOL

During meiosis, the chromosomes segregate into gametes. The gamete of one parent combines with the gamete of another. A PS has all the possible gametes of both parents. One on the top and one going down the left. The squares are then filled with all the possible combinations.

So it shows all the possible products of meiosis for both parents, and then all of their possible combinations...

It shows all possible combinations of genes that can result.

How is punnett square a model for what happens during meiosis?

It's not. Sorry. A punnett square is used to calculate the genotype of the offspring of two people/animals/plants/whatever using the parents' genotypes. meiosis is the reproductive cells splitting and copying themselves, so you couldn't use a punnett square. The Punnett square is a diagram that is used to predict the outcome of a particular cross or breeding experiment. A Punnett Square is not applied to the individual meiotic events C.B.
