Product Description
In Exploring Cells- The Basic Units of Life, students rotate through 8 lab stations in which they explore: the incredible cell, discovery of cells and the cell theory, types of cells, characteristics of living things, intro to basic parts of plant and animal cells, cellular responses that take place in cells, and DNA extraction.

Students work in groups of 3 or 4 and have about 7-8 minutes per lab station. Each student records his/her own observations and answers in his/her own lab packet.

Station work includes: video clips, station cards, reference books, science article analysis, Basic Units of Life flip book, Types of Cells flip book, microscopes and cork slides, virtual labs, and plant and animal cell models

The attached activity file includes detailed instructions for putting together the activity. A list of materials and links to video clips and virtual lab sites are included in the teacher notes.
