Snag students attention by teaching them to calculate how many cells make up their body - and how few of those cells are actually human cells. This lesson is a perfect introduction to basic cell theory, structures, and sizes for a secondary biology class.
This purchase includes a 30 slide PowerPoint to guide you in introducing students to the material. Also included are scaffolded student notes and comic strip templates. After taking notes and sketching different human cell types, students are prompted to design a comic strip conversation about cells.
Students enjoy the cell size simulation (link included) and discussion about a human's place in the microbiological world.
