This is an interactive PowerPoint on the structure and functions of animal cells.
Included are an Animal Cell Structures and Functions PowerPoint, an animal cell diagram blackline, an animal cell vocabulary sheet, and an animal and plant cell compare and contrast graphic organizer.
About this Lesson:
I created this PowerPoint lesson and I designed a cell diagram blackline to go with the PowerPoint. I created a way for the students to learn the parts of cells without just labeling a diagram.
The Cell Blackline is just a blank outline of the cell.
The PowerPoint then gives them the nickname and function of each organelle and then each organelle has a slide that shows them the location of that organelle.
Each student has color pencils and as they learn about each organelle, they write the information about that organelle on the vocabulary sheet and then they would draw, color each organelle and then label.
As you go through the PowerPoint the students draw and color each organelle, one at a time. This also gives time for discussion and questions about each structure and function.
At the end the students would have a complete color diagram of the cell with labels, that they walked through and created step by step.
