Cell Structure and Function Microscope Lab
Suitable for biology students in grades 8 - 12.
Lab Duration: 3 class periods.
This is a very extensive lab lesson plan on cell structure and function. This lab can be used with grades 8 through 12. It is great for younger students just learning about cells, and it can be a great review for older students. This lab would be a great activity to review the care and use of a microscope.
The lab is in sections:
(1) Comparison of Plant and Animal Cells (2) Cells with Chloroplast (3) Cell with Chromoplast (4) Storage in Cells and (5) Organizaton of Cells. Do all five sections or just the sections you want or need.
I have used this lab with Biology I and Biology II students and they love it. They love the extended time in the lab and they love looking at so many different types of cells. My students love all the drawing involved in the lab.
