This cell webquest is designed to guide students towards a basic understanding of kingdoms, eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, and simple animal and plant organelles. It has 4 different websites that students visit to answer guided questions, as well as a Venn diagram for synthesis of learning. The webquest can also be used as an easy and valuable substitute lesson plan, as can the scoot QR code activity.
I use this as a multiple day homework assignment while students are completing their microscope training manual. By the time they finish this piece of homework, they are proficient enough on the microscope to begin investigating real plant and animal cells.
