• The Discovery of Cells
• The Plasma Membrane
• Eukaryotic Cell Structure
• Prokaryotic Cell Structure
• Cellular Transport

Students will be able to:
• State the cell theory
• Distinguish characteristics of prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells
• Describe the functions of the major cell structures
• Identify structures and explain the main functions of the cell membrane and cell wall
• Recognize scientists’ contributions to the discovery of the cell
• Understand effects of osmosis on cells in hypertonic solution, hypertonic solution, and isotonic solution

Note: This lesson on cells is part of the Life Science Interactive Notebook – The COMPLETE Bundle for the ENTIRE YEAR which is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).



Each concept on cells shares:
Actual photos of both the INPUT and OUTPUT pages of the Science Interactive Notebook
Detailed instructions on how to create/use/complete activity for OUTPUT side
Mini-Quizzes for each concept to check students’ understanding
Answer Keys for all mini-quizzes
• Appendix with Teacher Notes for Interactive Notebook in LARGE print.


Each STUDENT OUTPUT activity enables students to process the information given by the teacher then allows them to use self-direction to apply their new knowledge. The engaging activities always vary in order for all students to use and benefit from different learning styles. Activities included correlate with the Next Generation Science Standards and include the following:

• Cell History Timeline (Hooke, Redi, Schwann, Leeuvenhoek, Watson, Schleiden, Schwann, Morgan, Jansen)
• Plasma Membrane Bubble activity that shows flexible membrane, semi-permeable membrane, embedded proteins, selective permeability, structure of plasma membrane, fluid mosaic model
• Eukaryotic cell structure (animal and plant cell) school analogy of mitochondria, vacuole, nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, ribosome, golgi apparatus, cytoskeleton, lysosome, plasma membrane
• Prokaryotic cell structure (bacteria) - making a "Wanted Poster"
• Effects of osmosis on cells in hypertonic solution, hypotonic solution, isotonic solution picture sort
