Deepen understanding of cell division with this resource. Young scientists read short paragraphs about the different stages of the cell cycle and use this information to answer a series of basic short answer questions and label several diagrams. This is an extensive series of paragraphs and questions that are based mostly on identification. You could give this out as a packet.
High schoolers investigate cell growth. In this cell replication lesson, students investigate mitosis and uncontrolled cell division such as cancer. They analyze different point of view regarding human cloning.
Students differentiate between plant and animal cells. They identify the structures central to plant cells. They complete a Venn Diagram listing the differences between animal and plant cells.
High schoolers investigate how mutations lead to changes in cell structure and function. They construct an oligonucleotide, identify a protein sequence, design a step-by-step mechanism of how they think cells repair damaged DNA, and prepare and observe cells of yeast cells.
Students differentiate between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. They examine pictures of prokaryotes and eukaryotes and write down the differences between the two. They complete a Venn Diagram on the cells.
In this cellular activity students complete a series of multiple choice questions on cell respiration, proteins and photosynthesis.
Students analyze data taken from proteomic experiments. In this biology lesson plan, students explain the importance of bioinformatics tools in the study of proteins. They evaluate scientific results using math and computer software.
Students experience a hands-on activity that simulates cell membrane structure and function. They explain the structure of the cell membrane and the unique properties does it has.
Seventh graders compare and contrast plant and animal cells. In this biology lesson, 7th graders research about the development of the cell theory. They prepare a creative presentation of their research findings such as a brochure or photo story.
Students are introduced to biotechnology by using models. The teacher uses A Sourcebook of Biotechnology Activities, Rasmussen and Matheson project co directors. One of the activities in the book is: students use a scale models to very clearly represent the bacteria E. coli with all of its prokaryotic parts.
Students observe cytoplasmic streaming in Nitella cells. They examine the conduction of a wave of depolarization across other membranes, such as the axons of neurons. Students predict the effects of sending a small electric current through the cells.
Does anyone remember seeing the movie Fantastic Voyage? This app is reminiscent of that imaginary journey through the human body, but in this case, venture even further into individual cells!
Young scholars compare the organelles present in plant and animal cells. In this biology lesson plan, students create an analogy to easily remember their assigned organelles. They also research their function and write a creative story.
Eighth graders summarize the contribution of different scientists to the cell theory. In this biology lesson, 8th graders identify the different cell organelles. They sketch and label the parts of the cell.
In this cells learning exercise, students learn the important vocabulary pertaining to cell biology. Students read 14 words with their definitions. There are no questions to answer.
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. Bonus activities include causing plasmolysis in plant cell, and separating plant pigments via chromatography. This is an A+ resource!
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. Six activities in all, this collection is a must for your biology class! Lesson plans are thoroughly written and the activities are both engaging and informational. Thank the National Science Teachers Association for this gem of a resource!
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. Thorough background information, student handouts, and relevant resource links help make this a breeze for you to teach!
Students explore the different characteristics of the cell using a virtual lab. In this biology lesson, students classify an unknown cell sample based on its properties. They demonstrate mastery of the subject by creating a presentation of their findings.
High schoolers investigate cells. They discover what cells are, where they are found, what they do and what they are made of. They construct a giant cell that is posted on the bulletin board.
