Now, this is a clever approach to understanding cell organelles; seven pairs of organelles are listed, and pupils write an explanation of how each pair cooperates to perform certain cell functions. Organelles include the nucleus, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi bodies, lysosomes, vesicles, and the cell membrane.

New Review Edible Cell Model Project
Science has never tasted so sweet! Engage young scholars in exploring the anatomy of the cell with a fun life science project. Choosing to focus on either plants or animals, students create edible cell models with a key that identifies and explains the functions of organelles like the nucleus, mitochondria, cytoplasm, and cell membrane.

Human Cheek Cell
Get up close and personal with human cells with this lab worksheet. Learners use a microscope to examine their own cheek cells, drawing diagrams of the cells and identifying the parts when they have focused in on a visible specimen. After they draw their cells, young scientists answer 4 questions about the lab, cells, and organelles.

Difference One Proton Makes
Chemsitry aces learn that protons are located in the nucleus and the number of protons in the nucleus determines the atomic number of an element. For this lesson, they compare materials made up of a single element and other materials which have a difference of only one proton in their atomic nucleus.

All About Circuits ~ Atomic Structure
For this interactive Internet assignment, physical science investigators answer 11 questions about the atom, the subatomic particles, and atomic structure. They can click on "Reveal Answer" to discover if they are correct. They also calculate the number of moles in a sample of iron and express the atomic mass and mass number using an algebraic expression.

What a comprehensive summary of introductory nuclear physics! Although the delivery is dry, the information is valuable and several "Check for Understanding" slides are interspersed throughout to reinforce learning. As a result of viewing these slides, future physicists will be able to determine the charge of a nucleus, differentiate between alpha and beta particles, describe background radiation and Geiger counters, and more!
