Engage your middle school students with this flexible, complete cell introduction lesson. Everything you need for a class from start to finish in one package. Students will learn about cells by starting with a dust challenge. Who can find the most in the classroom or school. Imagine their disbelief or disgust when they learn that 70 percent of dust is made of dead skin cells. With this backdrop students will learn about the history of discoveries leading to modern cell theory. Reinforce learning though scribble notes and interactive Google Sorts. This lesson sets the ground work for future lessons on cells and cell parts. Additionally, students will review the key parts of experiments as the look at how Francesco Redi disproved the theory of spontaneous generation.
NOTE: Scribble notes can also be found in Cell Scribble Notes
