A brilliant batch of slides was created to teach young biologists about cell anatomy. It contains crisp and colorful graphics of organelles, along with pertinent informational text. Viewers will be able to differentiate between plant and animal cells, identify organelles, and name the function of each. Teacher's notes are written for many of the slides to guide your verbal explanations. Review questions and a vocabulary overview wrap up the presentation.
Students explore the functions of major eukaryotic organelles. They compare and contrast prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Given diagrams and drawings, students take turns drawing structures, discussing their function, and labeling each function. They play the "What Am I" game to describe the function of organelles.
Students simulate a working cell by making a model. In this cell organelles lesson, students research the cell and create a model of a cell cross section. Students make observations as they navigate an online site showing the inside of the cell. Students create a poster showing the parts of the cell.
Two terrific slide shows are included in this biology resource. The first covers the organelles and general structure of both plant and animal cells. It even explains the cell memebrane proteins: receptors, markers, and channel proteins. The second features cell transport processes. Almost all of the colorful diagrams are clear and offer plenty of detail. There is even an animation demonstrating diffusion. Use this as a support to your lessons on the cell in your high school biology class.
As your class views each slide, they will be introduced to the organelles and structure of the cell. Details about structure and function are given and also some trivia about their frequency and population. There is also some information about potential related problems. A wonderful introduction to cell structure.
