This PowerPoint includes built-in activities with instructions and follow-up questions, critical class notes (red slides), activities, built-in quizzes / challenge questions and answers, links to great videos and websites, 10 page homework, lesson notes, answer keys and much more. Also included is a 160 slide PowerPoint Review Game with template and answers that concludes the lesson bundle.
This PowerPoint begins with a neat project that has the students design a city based on cellular organelles, (Nucleus = Town Hall etc.) are provided. Instructions to this activity are provided in the PowerPoint, Students are also given a project to create a poster of cellular organelles in the shape of their assigned organelle for later presentation. When each new organelle is presented in the PowerPoint, a slide cues the student to present. This spreads presentations throughout a couple of days.
A description of a nucleus and the presentation of organelle posters that were described continue. A link to a virtual slide will cover any part not described on the poster as well as an image of the nucleus and nucleolus. An activity follows that has the students learn the nucleus by relating it to a hard boiled egg. A step by step series of slides present the nucleus and relate it to each layer of the egg. Features such as the nucleolus, nucleoplasm, nuclear membrane, chromatin, and chromosomes are addressed. In a few situations students draw chromosomes and chromatin etc on the egg. A neat video link and activity discusses DNA wrapping and the difference between chromosomes and chromatin. The Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum is then described. The student poster is presented and link to the virtual cell provided. Students then learn the lost art of maze building and create a maze in their journal. They have a friend complete the maze. The membranes of the R.E.R follow and students learn how ribosomes travel out of the nucleus and travel through the maze-like series of membranes. Like all the organelles, a step by step approach describes the structure and function. The Smooth E.R is then described in a series of slides. as well as ribosomes. A neat simulation is described that has the teacher turn the classroom into a cell. A student in the nucleus makes ribosomes that travel through a nuclear pore (tunnel created by teacher) and enters the membrane maze of chairs and classroom tables. The students (ribosomes) must eventually attach to the E.R. Protein synthesis is then described in a series of slides and a link to a neat video from the 70's that explains the dynamic process is provided. The Golgi Complex is then described and link to the virtual cell website provided. After a series of slides that explain the Golgi Apparatus, the most bizarre learning activity occurs. Students make Golgi Body fanny packs. Each clear plastic bag contains a card that describes the Golgi Apparatus. With some string and holes punched into the bags the fanny pack is complete and ready to by shown off to everyone. Some slides pump up the fanny pack experience (Some bonus points for wearing the fanny pack may be needed to encourage a few). Lysosomes are covered in detail and then a series of review questions with visuals follows.
Student posters are still presented (project that began in Part I) as well as a link to a virtual cell website. A neat image shows a picture of the cytoskeleton and then describes microtubules, intermediate filaments, and microfilaments. Students must decide which letter on the PowerPoint is pointing to which parts of the cytoskeleton. The centrioles are then described. Chloroplasts are then described in a step by step process. A series of slides describes the photosynthesis equation and then students practice using the equation over many challenge slides. Color coding text, boxes light up and students describe which part of the equation is underneath and many more challenge slides really drive the equation home through repetition. Mitochondria are then described in detail and the respiration equation covered in similar fashion. Vacuoles are then covered in detail over a series of slides. Next students warm-up over a series of challenge slides to name the cellular organelle based on a real images. The quiz has 1-20 various organelles. After the quiz the answers are provided. The question is previewed one last time before the answer is revealed. This is a really neat PowerPoint that is engaging and challenging. Please see the entire unit described below.
This PowerPoint includes critical notes (Red Slides), exciting visuals, challenge questions, activities with directions and more. Text is usually placed at the top of the slide so it can be read from all angles of a classroom. Color coded slides, as well as a shade technique is used to increase student focus and allows the teacher to control the pace of the lesson. These PowerPoints are meant to be interactive as possible and ask many questions, provides built in review opportunities, explains directions to activities, and much more.
