Product Description
A must-do microscopic activity when teaching the differences between plant and animal cells. The procedures to prepare both wet mounts (onion and cheek cells) are completely described and images are included that identify the visible parts of each cell. Students will view their own animal cells under the microscope and compare them to the onion cells which contain a cell wall. The materials, procedure, and template for a microscopic diagram are provided for students to incorporate into a lab notebook.

Students who finish early can work on the provided Venn diagram where students compare the plant and animal cells. Answer key included.
