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. If you are new to teaching biology, here is a resource that thoroughly prepares you to teach a classic introductory lesson plan on cells.
