This PowerPoint file is a wonderful presentation about the history of cells. The PowerPoint begins with the discussion of Robert Hooke, proceeds to the Cell Theory (Schwann, Schleidan, & Virchow), then discusses the diversity of cells, and ends with the differences between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. This PowerPoint contains a very nice collection of images and animations to assist with understanding. All pictures used are in the “public domain” so there is no worry of copyright violation. At the end is a quick practice quiz for your students to try if you wish to check for understanding.
I have also included a “fill-in-the-blank” style worksheet to accompany these notes for you to distribute to your students if you wish.
