Cell Organelles Lesson Plans

  • Lab Experiment
    Cheek Cell Lab
    Lesson Plan
     
    Experiment
    In this short lab, students take a sample of cheek cells from themselves using a toothpick, put a stain on the slide along with the cheek cells, and observe the nucleus and cell membrane under a microscope. Students also answer analysis questions about the procedure and cells.

    Rate of Photosynthesis
    Lesson Plan
     
    Experiment
    Students perform a simple experiment of photosynthesis using Elodea, baking soda, water and a lamp. The amount of bubbles are counted per minute.

    Worksheet
    Students will be able to explain how energy is transferred in nature and the equations of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Hand out this worksheet before introducing cellular energy. Students are to fill in this worksheet while you teach about the transfer of energy from food to ATP. Students then use this worksheet as a central place to study from to prepare for a test or quiz.
