Human Cheek Cell
Get up close and personal with human cells with this lab learning exercise. Learners use a microscope to examine their own cheek cells, drawing diagrams of the cells and identifying the parts when they have focused in on a visible specimen. After they draw their cells, young scientists answer 4 questions about the lab, cells, and organelles. This resource also provides an alternative in which scholars observe skin cells from their wrists instead of their cheeks.
