    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.

  • Lab Experiment
    Creating Coacervates
    Lesson Plan
     
    Experiment
    Students mix a carbohydrate solution with a protein solution, adjust the pH, and view coacervates: amoeba-like objects, which change shape, flow, merge, divide, form "vacuoles", release "vacuole contents", and show other life-like properties. Students understand that under suitable conditions, life-like structures can form naturally from relatively simple materials.

    Activity
    Students learn the chemical formula for photosynthesis by acting out plant's photosynthetic process including photosystem 2, photosystem 1, and the Calvin cycle. Great visual and kinesthetic activity.

  • Worksheet
    Cell City Analogy WS
    Lesson Plan
     
    Worksheet
    This simple worksheet provides a narrative story about the different parts of a city with underlined words. Students then match the underlined words with the different organelles of a cell.
