MAKE A MODEL CELL

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Students review and compare plant and animal cells, and then build a model of an animal cell.
Lesson Planet

The City Inside a Cell

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Students compare cell structure to the structure of a city. For this cell structure lesson, students investigate differences and similarities between cell structure and city structure. Students create a 3-dimensional, edible model of a...
Lesson Planet

Cell Parts

For Teachers 5th - 8th
Learners identify parts of a cell. In this biology lesson, students create a simulated cell by using Jell-o, fruit roll ups, raisins, gum drops, and M&M's. Learners construct the simulated cell and identify each part.
Lesson Planet

Making a Model of the Cell

For Teachers 8th - 10th
Students construct a cell model. In this cell lesson plan, students gather materials at home and design a free standing, 3 dimensional cell model in class. Students must include listed cell structures, a key and a description of the type...
Lesson Planet

Cell-O

For Teachers 4th - 5th
Students create model cells using gelatin, toothpicks, and various fruits to represent organelles. Then, students observe their models and complete a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting plant and animal cells.
Lesson Planet

Cell Structures

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students differentiate between a prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell and give examples of both types. They differentiate between a plant and animal cell. Students will be able to name features common to both as well as unique features of each.
Lesson Planet

Cells Are Building Blocks

For Teachers 5th - 6th
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...
Lesson Planet

String Cells

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Use this resource to have your class learn about the cell. This resource walks learners through the construction of a model of a cell. This project is completed in a cooperative learning group, and  reinforces the higher-order thinking...

Structure and Function of Cell Membranes

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Lead your high school class on an exploration inside the cell. Individuals investigate the relationships between cells structure and function given their relative locations on the cell membrane. They explore the concept of homeostasis...
Lesson Planet

Cells Build Tissues, Organs and Body Systems

For Teachers 6th
Sixth graders build a simple animal cell following an instruction guide. In this life science lesson plan, 6th graders identify the different parts and functions of the cell. They complete a worksheet after the lab.
Lesson Planet

Blood Cell Basics

For Teachers 3rd - 5th
Students design a proportional model of blood out of red gelatin, a plastic bag, and rice. They study the components that make up blood and investigate what happens when the arteries in different scenerios. They work in pairs in order to...
Lesson Planet

Cell Organelles

For Teachers 5th - 6th
Young scholars simulate a working cell by making a model. In this cell organelles lesson plan, students research the cell and create a model of a cell cross section.  Young scholars make observations as they navigate an online site...
Lesson Planet

Community Cell

For Teachers 6th - 8th
Middle schoolers explore parts and functions of the cell, and create models of assigned organelles.
Lesson Planet

Eukaryotic Cells: The Factories of Life

For Teachers 6th - 12th Standards
Eukaryotes include humans, animals, and plants. Scholars learn about the parts of eukaryotic cells. They design models of a store and match the correct function of each part to the function of a part of the cell. They review their...
Lesson Planet

Plant and Animal Cells

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Incorporate multiple facets of the cell into your next high school lab! Through an introduction to cell organelles, class members observe each cell type and draw visuals to further demonstrate understanding of cellular processes in both...
