Cells and Their Organelles
Introduce your learners to cells and organelles with this resource. This series of handouts and images asks young scientists to read short informational paragraphs, answer identification questions, and color and label diagrams of an animal cell and a plant cell.

Wow! Separate organelles from the cells of dried peas. Observe vacuoles in beet cells. Watch protists in action. Examine SEM photographs. Beginning biologists get a complete exposure to the structure and function of cell organelles. Two assessments are also available, which you can assign as homework.

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.

Tour of the Cell 1
Each of these slides deals with an individual organelle and displays a diagram along with labels of the structures. The most useful components of this slideshow are the summaries of functions and descriptions of how the organelles are the most efficient for their jobs.

Liken a cell and its organelles to a tiny person and its organs. After gathering information on cell structures and their functions, small groups collaborate to come up with an analogy of their own. They produce a collage describing the cell and its organelles, side-by-side with the comparison.

Animal Cell Construction
Using a piece of pink paper as the cytoplasm of an animal cell, beginning biologists color and cut out organelles on the handout to glue onto their cell models. Afterward, they create a list of the structures and describe the function of each.

Tour of the Cell 2
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.

3-D Cell Model
Life science laureates choose a plant or animal cell to construct a model of as an at-home project. This handout provides guidelines, suggested materials, and a grading rubric for their reference. A full-page letter to parents is also part of this document, which can be used to emphasize the importance of the project.

Cell Construction Lab
An introduction and general requirements for creating a model of a plant or animal cell are provided for basic biology learners. It includes a list of which organelles must be crafted as well as a parent signature tear-off and an empty table for students to write down each organelle that they include, along with its function.

Study Jams! Animal Cells
Using stunning computer imagery, this resource introduces life science learners to cells. It zeros in on the animal cell and the function of its more prominent organelles. Additional support is offered in the form of a self-assessment and key vocabulary terms with definitions.

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.

"Microscope Man" is the story of a microscopic adventurer who journeys through the interior of a cell. This is a clever approach to reviewing the structure of a plant cell! After reading the story, cell biologists answer questions in which they need to identify the organelles that Microscope Man encounters.

Introductory Bacteria and Virus Worksheet
Compare and contrast eukaryotes, prokaryotes, and viruses with a chart and a Venn diagram. Beginning microbiologists consider motility, reproductive ability, DNA content, and the presence of organelles. They write short answers to questions and draw the three types of bacteria.

A Cellular Overview
This is an interesting survey of the cell. Biology pupils describe the relationship between cells, tissues, and organs. They explain cell theory, compare prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and provide evidence for the endosymbiont theory. A critical thinking question asks them what they would need in order to tell if a cell was prokaryotic or eukaryotic.

Cells - The Building Blocks of Life
It has appeal; Vivid microscopic images or colorful diagrams are displayed on almost every slide of this introduction to cells. Visit scientists who contributed to cell theory, learn the general components of cells, and compare prokaryotes to eukaryotes.
