Objectives 
Students will identify the 10 organelles/cell structures on a diagram with correct spelling.
Students will identify organelles/cell structures with their function and whether they are found in plant or animal cells.
Students will use the internet to gather information about plant and animal cells.
Students will design, create and present a 3D labeled animal or plant cell.
Procedure 

Description: This lesson is designed as an introductory lesson in Biology. It focuses on the study of animal and plant cell structures. The lecture activity introduces each type of cell, animal and plant, and discusses their differences and similarities. The lecture also discusses the organelles' structure and function. Encourage students to draw their own pictures of plant and animal cells during the lecture. The lesson includes a group project which uses the internet for research.

Day 1:

Lecture Activities:

1.    Show Magic Schoolbus video:

a.    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mHlf17f0Y0&feature=related

b.    Ask students to take notes throughout the video.

c.   Give students the print-out of plant and animal cells and encourage the class to draw their own during the lecture.

3.    Show cell structure video. This website has many cell and organelle quizes as well.

a.    http://www.neok12.com/php/watch.php?v=zX606f017b425c70037a435d&t=Cell-Structures

b.    Ask students about the differences in structure and function of plant and animal cells. Ask students if they know by the shape on the presentation slides which organelle or type of cell it is.

Homework: The class must write each organelles' function next to its label on the plant and animal cell diagram. They must study the diagrams and come to class the next day familiar with cell and organelle structure and function.

Day 2:

Students will divide into groups of 4 to create a 3D model of a cell. The cell can either be an animal cell or a plant cell. Each student will have a specific task. One student will be the speaker/labeler, another will be the organelle architect, another will be the cell body architect, and finally there will be a researcher. Every essential organelle and cell structure should be present in the project and properly labeled as well as a “unique/special organelle” of their choice. Each group will be able to use any of the art supplies provided to them in the classroom.

After each group has created their cell, the speaker will present the project. They will discuss why they choose that cell and its materials and why they chose their “unique/special organelle,” its function and its structure.

Students will use one of the following websites to do research for their group project:

http://www.cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model.htm

http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/animals/cell/

 

Testing: Individually, Students will fill out 10 blanks with the correct organelles and their function on a diagram of an animal and plant cell such as the one attached. All as class, students will also complete one or all of the following online quizes about cells and organelles.

Websites for Quizes:

Evaluation:

All students must contribe to the construction of a 3D model of a cell. All students must demonstrate understanding of the differences between plant cells and animal cells, and know the names and functions of the cell organelles. All students must correctly label and describe at least 8 of the 10 blanks on the cell diagram and contribute to the completion of the online quizes as a class.
