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. Bonus activities include causing plasmolysis in plant cell, and separating plant pigments via chromatography. This is an A+ resource!
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. 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!
Cellular Biology Overview: Cell Structure and Classification
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.
Students 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.
Use this resource to have your class learn about the cell. This resource walks learners through the construction of a model of a cell. This project is completed in a cooperative learning group, and reinforces the higher-order thinking skill of analogy building.
Microarrays and Stem Cells
Background reading is available in the first two pages of this worksheet, along with reading comprehension questions and a laboratory activity in which students use mircroarray technology to identify genes used in cell differentiation. This is a comprehensive college-level genetics assignment that will require more than one session to complete.
Cells Are Building Blocks
Investigate the parts and functions of animal and plant cells. Observe slides on which different types of cells are displayed and answer questions on a related worksheet. Construct a cell model using household items such as pasta and marbles. Detailed instructions are included.
Students define the function of the different parts of a cell. In this biology lesson, students discuss cell structures and how its organelles perform basic functions. They differentiate between human and animal cells.
Catering Middle-School Science: Monomers, Polymers, and Macromolecules
Students investigate foods. In this biology lesson plan, students will conduct testing on different types of foods as they learn about different molecules that make them up. Students will also learn about the shapes of the molecules.
Using Bubbles to Explore Membranes
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.
Students analyze data taken from proteomic experiments. In this biology lesson, students explain the importance of bioinformatics tools in the study of proteins. They evaluate scientific results using math and computer software.
7.013 Problem Set (The Chemistry of Heredity)
A biology exam for college level learners, this resource has four multi-part questions. For the first, takers analyze a schematic of protein synthesis in E. coli. For the second, they analyze mRNA sequences and mutations. For the third, they review data on the incorporation of galactose into a cell wall. Finally, they study a lab situation and answer questions about the process. This comprehensive test will really show who knows their stuff!
7.012 Fall 2004 Section Self-quiz
This quiz just looks neat! It has two cell diagrams for biology class members to label. They also describe the function of each organelle. A prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell are displayed for them to compare, and then they fill in the blanks in sentences about glycolysis and DNA. This is appropriate for use in any high school or college level general biology course.
Biochemistry and Glycolysis
Definitely geared toward college level biology, this worksheet is a survey of metabolism and biosynthesis. All questions require learners to write out short explanations, and a few include the analysis of graphs. The subtopics of the assignment are metabolism, thermodynamics, kinetics, ATP, and glycolysis. Use this as a biochemistry unit review.
7.014 Quiz 1 (Organic Processes)
Four multi-part questions and a chart of the amino acids fill the eleven pages of this biology assessment. Geared toward a college-level course, this resource queries takers about the structure and behavior of the cell membrane, photosynthesis, glycolysis, fermentation, respiration, and enzyme activity. This is appropriate for an organic chemistry or biochemistry course.
7.012 F'04 Problem Set 1 - Cellular Structure
College-level biologists describe ions and van der Waals forces. They identify parts of amino acid chains on diagrams and describe the chains in a checklist. In a second section, learners compare prokaryotic to eukaryotic cells and then match organelles with their functions or characteristics. Finally, they mark portions of a sequence of amino acids that are expected to be transmembrane regions. This is an ideal assignment to give as a unit review.
Lesson 7: Cells
Students complete activities to explain and apply cell theory.
What is a Cell?
Young scholars create a timeline about the development of the cell theory. In this biology lesson, students observe different cell samples under a microscope. They draw their observations and complete a lab report.
Cell Theory Rap
All that this will link you to is a rap about cell theory and organelles. Use it as an example for a creative assignment in your biology class. Divide the class into groups and assign them a topic for which they write and perform a skit, song, poem, or rap. This would be an entertaining way to review for a semester exam. Assign each group a different chapter from your textbook to present to the class.
Biology Honors Final Project
Tenth graders work on a project about cellular biology and genetics. In this biology lesson, 10th graders research about the assigned human body system and genetic disorders that affect it. They create a multimedia presentation and present it to an audience.
