Product Description

Eight pictures to cut out showing different types of cells along with eight descriptions of their functions and some hints about morphology. In order to match them correctly, students must read descriptions closely and carefully observe the cell pictures. Pictures show some cells found in the human body, pathogens, plant cells, and phytoplankton. Questions require students to write about how different cell types work together and how form and function are connected. Kit includes answer key and pro tips.

Topics briefly addressed in the descriptions include:

  • neurons carry signals (impulses)
  • motor neurons stimulate muscle fibers to contract
  • muscle fibers contain protein filaments that slide together, leading to contraction of a muscle
  • red blood cells are specialized to carry oxygen to all body cells
  • sperm cells are the only human cells with a long flagellum
  • sperm cells are richly supplied with mitochondria to give them energy
  • Plasmodium cells that cause malaria go through many stages in their life cycle
  • E. coli bacteria are found in human intestines and feces and can indicate that water has been contaminated with sewage
  • phytoplankton supply more than 50% of the oxygen we breathe
  • sugars move through plants in sieve-tube cells specialized for transport
