Oxidation and Reduction in Cellular Respiration
This topic builds on the previous video. It deals with the equation of respiration and whether electrons or hydrogen are being lost or gained at the different stages.
Learners explain the process of cellular respiration in their own words. In this biology lesson plan, students trace the electron path down the chain. They calculate the molecules and energy product of respiration.
2D Animation of Cellular Processes
Students create an animation of a cell process and insert it into a presentation. They choose a cellular process such as mitosis, osmosis or DNA replication, and create a simple 2D animation.
Biology: Genetics and Heredity
Seventh graders explore the connection between genetics and heredity by examining the cellular structure. Among the numerous activities to engage students are drawing DNA molecules, vocabulary puzzle sheets, and predicting possible offspring combinations by discovering the Punnett Squares to predict ratios for inherited traits.
Comparing Animal and Plant Cell Structure
Students work as a team to use the ProScope Digital USB Microscope and a computer to collect microscopic images from a variety of organisms. When they compare these specimens, they are able to determine how they are alike and different by comparing their cellular parts.
Cell Organelle Charades
Students create a play illustrating the parts of the cell. In this cellular biology lesson, students work in groups to act out the cellular parts and functions. They complete a quiz after completing the activity.
Mastering the Parts of a Cell
There are great lessons and tricks you can use for teaching your students about cellular organelles.
How Do Organisms Reproduce
Students examine the difference between mitosis and meiosis, and describe the steps involved in meiosis and the significance of each step. They create a diploid nucleus containing two pairs of chromosomes using clay.
The Challenge to Deliver Insulin
Students investigate these fundamental chemical and cellular processes. They recognize the long-term danger that comes from a diet of fast food, chips, and soda, realize that avoiding diabetes is their responsibility, and establish healthy ways of living.
Selling Cells: a Study of Organelles and Cell Structure
Students study cellular structures and functions. In this cell function lesson students participate in a class discussion then make a drawing of the cell they are discussing.
Cellular Respiration: Harvesting Chemical Energy
A complete overview of oxidation, reduction, and how electrons are moved in respiration. You could use this slide show to elaborate on the concept of harvesting stored energy, and to summarize the stages of aerobic and anaerobic metabolism.
Krebs/Citric Acid Cycle
This second video on respiration focuses on the Krebs cycle, which is sometimes known as the citric acid cycle.
Sixth graders, in groups, learn the morphology and function of organelles within plant and animal cells.
In this biology worksheet, students learn about cells and their various parts. They first read a page and a half of facts about cells and then answer the 10 questions in the packet. The answers are on the last page.
James Bond Cellular Spy (Protein Synthesis)
Students explain the process of transcription and translation by becoming part of the cell. They translate an amino acid sequence to create a protein. They explain why decoding an amino acid sequence is so important in real life situations.
Cellular Transport and the Cell Cycle
With a multitude of questions, this activity 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.
Each student construct a model of a cell on a large cookie, including the parts which were discussed during lecture.? Half of the class will be instructed to make plant cell models and the other half will be in charge of animal cell models.? Different colors of frosting and various types of candy will be available for the students to be creative in forming their models.
Students model the removal of a cell nucleus and the insertion of an alternate control center. They define some of the challenges faced in this type of transplant procedure. Students discuss cloning.
Using Multimedia to Identify Cell Parts
Students observe a multimedia presentation to assess the importance of microscopes in cellular investigations. They discover the cell's parts and their functions. They compare and contrast animal and plant cells.
Biology Honors Final Project
Tenth graders work on a project about cellular biology and genetics. In this biology lesson plan, 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.
