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.

The Discovery of the Atomic Nucleus
Your host, Dr. Brian Cox, calls Ernest Rutherford the first proper particle physicist. He uses tennis balls to demonstrate what happened when Rutherford's students fired particles at a sheet of gold. Rutherford was able to deduce that most of an atom is actually made up of empty space.

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.

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. In 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.

Atomic Structure and Ionic Bonding (A Visual Approach)
Using toothpicks, marshmallows, and round colored sticky dots, physical science enthusiasts build models of an atomic nucleus. In this eighth grade chemistry lesson plan, they play an atom-naming game with the models that they have constructed.

All About Circuits ~ Atomic Structure
In 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.

The Spanish Omelet
Learners use analogies to show the relationships among cell, nucleus, genes, chromosome, ribosome, replication, mitosis, transcription, translation, DNA, RNA, amino acids and proteins, genotype, phenotype, and genetics vs. environmental causes of cell defects.

Atomic Theory, Structure, and Symbols
In this atomic theory worksheet, students review the observations that led to the conclusion of the atom having a positively charged nucleus. Students compare atomic number and mass number and explain how the discovery of subatomic particles and isotopes affected Dalton's atomic theory.

Prokaryotic vs Eukaryotic
Students identify via slides prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. They identify plant or animal cells from slides or pictures. Students are given the question of the day. They are asked which has a nucleus, a prokaryotic or eukaryotic cell?
