Cells Are Building Blocks
Investigate the parts and functions of animal and plant cells. Observe slides on which different types of cells are displayed and answer questions on a related worksheet. Construct a cell model using household items such as pasta and marbles.

Do Plants Need Light?
Turn your classroom into a greenhouse with a lesson on plant growth. First, investigate the different parts of seeds, identifying the seed coat, cotyledon, and embryo. Then plant the seeds and watch them grow! Measure the new plants every couple of days to document their growth, moving some into a dark corner of the room to demonstrate their dependence on light.

CELL TRANSFORMATION IN TOBACCO LEAF DISKS
Students work with whole plant material and are not required to measure small quantities, yet they can see evidence of transformed plant cells (plant cells that have genes from bacterial plasmids). This is a laboratory suitable for students who are familiar with the basic principles of plant cell structure, tissue culture, sterile technique, and cell transformation (bacterial infection, plasmid vectors, marker genes, selection medium, and enzyme activity assays).

Animal and Plant Cell Journaling Activity
Jump into the classification of animal and plants cells, through this inviting lesson plan comparing Elodea leaves and Epithelial cells. Middle school learners will create wet mounts, write journal entries that compare specimens, and finally label illustrations of plant and animal tissues.

What Happens to Plant Cells in Hypertonic and Hypotonic Solutions?
Does salt water affect a plant cell differently than fresh water? High schoolers will work together to answer this question through a series of observations of macroscopic and microscopic observations. The investigations are straightforward and easy to follow, and they also lend themselves well to a full lab write up.

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.

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.

The Cell Membrane
Your students will love this PowerPoint! Great visuals will support understanding of membrane proteins, cell membranes, active transport, and diffusion. There are a lot of details on each page and all are relevant. The presentation could be split into sections to support a worksheet or to create a self-test paper.

The Three Life-Giving Sisters: Plant Cultivation and Mohican Innovation
Children gain first-hand experience with Native American agriculture while investigating the life cycle of plants with this engaging experiment. Focusing on what the natives called the Three Sisters - corn, beans, and squash - young scientists germinate and grow seeds in order to learn about plant life and understand why the Mohicans chose to grow these plants alongside one another.

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.

Cells: A First-Hand View
In the first of two activities, your charges prepare wet mount slides of cork and bean sprout cells in imitation of Robert Hooke's historical investigation. An excerpt from his notes is included. Then, investigators compare animal cells to plant cells under the microscope, noting the identifying structures.

Cells and Chemical Changes
The billions of cells that make up all living things are the focus of this resource. Understanding the differences between the cells that make up plants and animals is an important distinction; it is covered here quite-well. Some excellent support materials are embedded in the plan.

The Effects of Photosynthesis on Plant Growth
Students are able to draw a diagram of the light reactions and briefly describe what is occurring throughout the process. They are able to explain where each reactant/product in the photosynthesis equation comes from/goes during the process and write down their observations about particular plants and discuss the implication some of these observations have on photosynthesis.
