Become a cell expert. Our resource demonstrates why cells are the building blocks of life. Start your breakdown by first identifying what a cell is. Then, compare single-celled and multicellular organisms. Introduce the concept of DNA before exploring the different parts of a cell. From there, take a look at the jobs of these parts. Move on to cell reproduction by exploring mitosis and meiosis. Dissect plant and animal cells to see how they work and how they are similar. Look at the big picture by seeing how cells become organisms. Finally, learn how particles move through cell membranes with diffusion and osmosis. Aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEAM initiatives, additional hands-on experiments, crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key are also included.
