Students work with whole plant material and are not required to measure small quantities, yet they can see evidence of transformed plant cells (plant cells that have genes from bacterial plasmids). This is a laboratory suitable for students who are familiar with the basic principles of plant cell structure, tissue culture, sterile technique, and cell transformation (bacterial infection, plasmid vectors, marker genes, selection medium, and enzyme activity assays).
Students determine why cell growth is limited and requires cell division. They explore the different phases of mitosis, the oncogenes that cause cancer, and possible treatments.
Introduce your learners to cells and organelles with this resource. This series of handouts and images asks young scientists to read short informational paragraphs, answer identification questions, and color and label diagrams of an animal cell and a plant cell. This is a complete resource that could be given as a packet. It also includes a graphic organizer in which class members can demonstrate their knowledge of the different organelles. Color cell diagrams are included on the last page.
Learners compare cell structure to the structure of a city. In this cell structure lesson, students investigate differences and similarities between cell structure and city structure. Learners create a 3-dimensional, edible model of a cell.
Learners study plant and animal cell components.  In this cell lesson students identify parts of a cell, view a PowerPoint presentation and diagram a cell. 
Fourth graders explore the structure and functions of plant and animal cells. In this plant and animal cell biology lesson, 4th graders view several multimedia presentations illustrating the structure and functions of cell. Students label the parts of a plant cell, make a  model of a cell, follow instructions to make an "edible" cell, and complete a matching test about the topics covered.
It has appeal; Vivid microscopic images or colorful diagrams are displayed on almost every slide of this introduction to cells. Visit scientists who contributed to cell theory, learn the general components of cells, and compare prokaryotes to eukaryotes. As enrichment, explore the endosymbiosis theory. Overall, this would be an informative introduction to cells for your high school biology inquisitors.
Students explore epidermal cells. After following specified procedures for removing epidermal cells from their wrist, students view the cells with the use of a microscope. After creating a drawing of their observation, students label the cells. They discuss the continual shedding of the skin.
Assign these 50 questions to your biology class as a review of cell division. Learners will address the cell cycle, cancer cells, cytokinesis, mitosis, meiosis, gene and chromosomal mutations, and karyotypes. The format is user-friendly, leaving room for pupils to write their answers beneath each question. It would be helpful in preparing them for a quiz on cell division concepts.
In this molecular biology instructional activity, students complete 50 multiple choice questions on DNA and RNA replication, translation and transcription.
Students study and explore the cell and its functions.  In this investigative students engage with the teacher over a powerpoint presentation and learn about cells and proteins. 
Students differentiate passive and active transport. In this biology lesson, students discover how substances pass through the cell membrane. They discuss the pros and cons of biotechnology.
Students develop a working vocabulary of terms related to the life cycle. In small groups, students play the life cycle's game which consists of matching and defining vocabulary. Directions for creating the game board are included with the lesson.
Students model the plasticity of neural pathways for memory in the brain. They simulate the cell activity according to dots on cards that they are given. They complete various simulations of different cell combinations.
Students study tissue engineering and its risks and benefits.  In this biology lesson students take a stand on a side then research and support their position. 
In this biology worksheet, students complete a crossword puzzle by choosing vocabulary words from a word bank to match with 94 clues given relating to all basic biology topics.
With a multitude of questions, this worksheet offers students the opportunity to review their knowledge about the cell cycle. Question types include true/false, word bank, and completing a table about the differences between interphase and mitosis. Additionally, students label diagrams with the phases of mitosis (terms are provided) and answer a short question about mitosis.
Students discuss the importance of reproduction of cells. They identify and describe the stages of Mitosis. They discover what happens to chromosomes and DNA during reproduction.
In this cell structure worksheet, students review the structure and function of eukaryotic cells. Students also compare and contrast an animal cell with a plant cell. This worksheet has 15 fill in the blank, 8 true or false, and 7 matching questions.
In this cell worksheet, students answer 21 questions about the cell. Topics include structures of the cell and their functions, types of cells and the complex cellular membrane.
