Product Description

Help your middle school students discover the basics of cell anatomy with these student-led lessons. Students begin by viewing plant-like and animal-like cells under the microscope and noting the differences and similarities on a Venn Diagram. Next, students will conduct research on the organelles inside the cells (usable with textbook or online resources), focusing their attention on the organelles most directly related to cell functions such as cellular respiration and photosynthesis. Finally, students will take a deeper look at the cell membrane with a fun activity that shows just how osmosis works! This is a perfect lesson set to engage student interest, focus on student-generated questions, and activate student-centered learning.
