    Project
    Students learn about the animal eukaryotic cell using an analogy. This project is to supplement your normal teaching about the cell. Great project for students to remember the organelles and structure of the cell. Topics include cell membrane, channel proteins, receptor proteins, mitochondria, riosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, and the nucleus. Go further topics include, plant cells, lysosomes, peroxisomes, and the cytoskeleton.
