Make a prototype of a game based on cell biology. Researching game design and working in groups to create a game will activate knowledge of cell biology. The review task will help students learning as they test out the games and their conclusion skills as they review and rate.
Ninth graders use online tutorials, class discussion, presentations and scientific articles to explore types of cells along with cell structure, function and behavior. They explore ethical questions related to cells and disease.
Students complete a cell biology lesson and a color lesson based on The Giver. In this biology and reading comprehension lesson set, students examine cells using microscopes. They look at the organelles and listen to How Much is a Million by David M. Schwartz to visualize the large number of cells. They watch a YouTube video of The Wizard of Oz before completing a color association activity. They read and respond to two chapters in The Giver.
Students identify basic components of skin on a cross sectional diagram. They provide a basic description of cancer in terms of cell biology. Students explore the ABCD of skin cancer/mole evaluation and perform their own evaluation of "test moles." They name the three kinds of skin cancer and describe where in the skin they originate.
High schoolers conduct a series of activities to explore the nature of cells. In this biology instructional activity, students observe plant and animal cells under the microscope and compare them. They differentiate osmosis and diffusion.
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. The lesson is part of a larger comprehensive unit on microbes that you will definitely want to consider.
Identify the different cell organelles in prokaryotes. Modelling the cells using Jell-o and candies will be a fun way to experience the cell in a hands-on way (different to using play-doh!). They observe cells under a microscope and draw what they see.
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.
Seventh graders describe the processes involved in mitosis and meiosis. In this life science lesson, 7th graders create chromosome models using strings and beads. They play a jeopardy team game at the end of the unit to review concepts learned.
By exploring the latest research on cell and tissue renewal your young scientists can understand the various internal body parts and systems examined in these studies.
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. Multiple online resources are linked to, and ideas suggested for extension activities.
Students investigate the function and structures of cells. In this biology lesson, students identify the different parts of a cell using a graphic organizer. They define the cell theory and how it relates to a cell as a whole.
In this cells vocabulary worksheet, students draw lines to match 12 words that pertain to cell biology to their meanings in another column.
Check out this fantastic image of an animal cell, while a narrator describes each part. This is a great video to show your class at the beginning of an animal cell lesson.
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. This lesson uses resources from a textbook along with research on the internet and index cards (not included) as a source of information.
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. Follow his story on natural selection and evolution with this note-worthy film. Accompany it with your choice of lessons or activities provided by the publisher.
Students create simple 2D concept driven visualizations of cells and cell organelles and organize them into an effective presentation.
A multi-faceted instructional activity 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. A card game is also suggested as a way to review material learned. Take the time to examine all of the resources built into this tremendous biology curriculum package, beginning with the Teacher Materials PDF document.
High schoolers 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.
Students study the characteristics of yeasts. In this biology lesson, students conduct experiments to measure yeast respiration. They discuss the favorable conditions needed for growing them.
