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.

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.

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.

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.

Cellular Structure and Function
Students examine animal and plant cells using a microscope and participate in a class discussion about the functions of the organelles. In this biology lesson, students use microscopes and videos to better understand the functions of specialized cells.

Cell 3: Organelles B
Learners, after researching cells, construct a model cell. They explain the structure and function of eukaryotic organelles in a presentation. In addition, they create their own analogies to describe the structure and function of eukaryotic organelles.

The Simple Story of Photosynthesis and Food
Meet adorable animated chloroplasts as they, with the help of the sun, produce glucose. In this four-minute feature, viewers learn how carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and electrons are combined to form carbohydrates. The narrator also explains how glucose is broken down in our bodies into ATP, which we use as energy.

Cells - Critical Thinking in Science
What are the structures in cells and what are their functions? Budding biologists discover the answers to these questions through an in-depth examination of cells and organelles. Using the 5E learning cycle, learners explore the types of organelles using an electron microscope, research, draw, and describe the function of each one, explain how different cell types make up different kingdoms, then design and execute an experiment to determine the effect of pH on algae.

Cell Brochure Project
After learning about cell structure and function, pairs work together to create a travel brochure highlighting the special features of a cell. By thinking creatively about the organelles, learners will gain a deeper understanding of the functions of each part of the cell.

Analogy of the Cell Project
Intended to supplement your existing cell function and organelle lessons, pairs work together to develop a real-world analogy for cell structures. In addition to writing paragraphs about the comparison, each group will make a short presentation in class to share their work.
