This .zip file contains materials for a middle school science lesson on the idea that cells are the building blocks of life, as part of a unit on living things. The unit was designed for 6th graders in NYC.
1 PowerPoint lesson presentation, including student practice/art activity (13 slides)
1 homework assignment
Presentations serve as lesson plans that guide the teacher through the entire lesson. Presentation includes links to related YouTube videos to increase student engagement (I can help you use YouTube videos in your class, even if your network blocks such sites, just ask).
