Students are challenged to eat some candy as a cell would need to do it. By solving this problem students simulate the cell process called endocytosis. They think about some of the problems that arise when a cell ingests food.
High school science classes will find this video intriguing. Viruses contain genetic information, but there are strong arguments for whether viruses are living or not. Replication versus metabolism and some details about the immune response are covered.
Critical thinking questions accompany a data chart and vocabulary terms about cell structure and function. By completing this two-page worksheet, your class reviews fundamental concepts about the cell. Though it was intended as a chapter reading guide for a specific text, it should be easily adaptable to your curriculum.
Biology pupils take the cell membrane apart piece-by-piece as they complete this worksheet. They describe the structure of the cell membrane and explain the processes that transport materials across it. This phenomenal resource even has a diagram of a passive transport demonstration for learners to analyze. 
In this transport worksheet, students compare and contrast the characteristics and examples of active transport and passive transport. This worksheet has 1 graphic organizer and 11 short answer questions.
First year life science or biology pupils will appreciate this all-inclusive reference page. It provides a diagram of both a plant and an animal cell, the metric system prefixes, classification levels, definitions for cell processes, the formulas for respiration and photosynthesis, and more. 
Mathematicians analyze the relationships between surface area and volume. They conduct Internet research, conduct various experiments, record the data in a spreadsheet, and graph the results and compare the rate of increase of surface area to the rate of increase of volume.
Your students will love this PowerPoint! Great visuals will support understanding of membrane proteins, cell membranes, active transport, and diffusion. There are a lot of details on each page and all are relevant. The presentation could be split into sections to support a worksheet or to create a self-test paper.  
Tenth graders explore the different health risks associated with human papillomavirus. For this health science lesson, 10th graders identify different ways to prevent viral and bacterial infection. They research and develop an awareness workshop for their friends and families.
In this autoregulation and capillary dynamics worksheet, students read through notes, label 3 diagrams, complete 5 equations and 45 short answer review questions.
In this osmosis worksheet, students read about how concentration gradients control osmosis and how this affects cells. Students complete 5 short answer questions based on the reading.
Students examine the human population response to microbial diseases.  In this disease instructional activity students observe population trends, write about a scientist and evaluate and defend current treatments for infectious diseases. 
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 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.
Students distinguish between active and passive transport. Students identify key words associated with active and passive transport. They draw and explain the structure f the cellular membrane. They are able to define phospholipid bilayer, hydrophilic, and hydrophobic. Students discuss diffusion which is an example of passive transport.
For this cell worksheet, students describe the components that make up the cell and their functions. Students discuss background of cell theory, complete tables, label charts and match functions of cell structures.
In this evolution worksheet, students will determine the evolutionary relationships among organisms using cladograms and phylogenetic diagrams. This worksheet has 13 short answer questions and 3 multiple choice questions.
In this language of science worksheet, students use the list provided to guess the meaning of each of the list. Students apply root words, prefixes, and suffixes to gain meaning of other science words.
High schoolers plot particle sizes of common airborne materials on a log scale. They read an article on particle size and its relationship to the ability to pass through the lungs, into the bloodstream, and eventually into the cells of the body. It is a terrific lesson for strengthening literacy as well as for increasing awareness of human impact on the environment. Note that the link to the article itself does not work, but it can be accessed through the National Center for Biotechnology Information or with a simple Internet search for the title.
In this cell structure worksheet, high schoolers complete 50 multiple choice question review quiz about the different functions and parts of the cell.
