Magnifying and Observing Cells
Though it isn't a novel activity to prepare onion cell and Elodea plant cell slides as examples of cells in a microbiology unit, this resource will leave you thoroughly prepared. As pupils examine the slides that they prepare, they draw what they see.

Investigating Factors That Affect Cell Membrane Permeability
Cell membranes and the factors that affect its integrity are studied, with Beet tissue used as the model. A poster to display findings of the permeability of the membranes would clarify understanding and also allow a layer of language arts preparation.

Variety Is the Spice of Cellular Life
Do you need to review animal cell structure? Investigate the ways in which different types of cells interact in a common human reflex. Your students can explore the functions of stem cells, consider various illnesses and assess stem cells potential to aid in cures.

The Making of the Fittest: Natural Selection in Humans
Sickle cell disease only occurs when both parents contribute the trait, and mostly in those of African descent. Where did it come from? How did it evolve? Tony Allison, a molecular biologist, noticed a connection between sickle cell and immunity against malaria when he was working in East Africa in the 1950s.

Classroom Activities: Stem Cells and Diabetes
A multi-faceted lesson immerses AP biologists into the world of the stem cell. Using PowerPoint presentations, you introduce your class to diabetes and the possibility of finding cures through stem cell research. Online animations and hands-on simulation activity provide experience reading microarrays.

The Cell Membrane
Your students will love this PowerPoint! Great visuals will support understanding of membrane proteins, cell membranes, active transport, and diffusion. There are a lot of details on each page and all are relevant. The presentation could be split into sections to support a worksheet or to create a self-test paper.

Cell Cycle: Cell growth, Cell Division
Whenever your students have a question about a stage of mitosis, you can be sure that viewing the relevant slide from this show will help their understanding. Covering the complete process of mitosis, this PowerPoint has images and examples of cell division along with details of some single cell specializations.

Embryonic Stem Cells
A presentation which concentrates on the development of the blastocyst and embryo after fertilization. Topics start with the scientific names and processes at each stage and then develops into an explanation of embryonic and somatic stem cells and plasticity.

Cancer and the Cell Cycle - Biology Teaching Thesis
Students are able to identify the different stages of mitosis and what occurs in each stage. They can identify the importance of the cell cycle control in maintaining homeostasis. Students are able to match the correct stage of mitosis with actual microscope images of the cell cycle.

Animal Cell Construction
Using a piece of pink paper as the cytoplasm of an animal cell, beginning biologists color and cut out organelles on the handout to glue onto their cell models. Afterward, they create a list of the structures and describe the function of each.

Cell Structures and Their Functions
Life science learners investigate live cells. They examine wet mount slides of cyanobacteria and Elodea plants. They peer into the dynamic microscopic world of protists. Afterward, they construct a model of a cell, including rudimentary structures: cell membrane, nucleus, chloroplast, cell wall, mitochondria, vacuole, and possibly flagella or cilia.

Cell Size and Shape; Diffusion and Osmosis Processes
Use salmon eggs as a cell model for demonstrating the movement of water over concentration gradients. Junior scientists examine the same process microscopically with an onion cell. They use a thistle tube and a semipermeable membrane to discover osmosis.

Cell Wall Recipe: A Lesson on Biofuels
Biotech engineers discover that changes in the DNA code for cell wall formation can help create crops better suited for biofuel production. They extract DNA from wheat germ. They decode paper strips with codes and relate the activity to DNA expression.
