Science - Cells
This is a class project we did to learn about the plasma membrane and its parts. The phospholipids were made of a balloon, two straws and masking tape to hold the tails onto the balloon. They were tied together on fishing string, glued together with rubber cement, then hung from the ceiling. The other parts were cut from heavy paper.
Cells, Cells, Cells!These completely student-run seven cell stations require approximately three class periods to complete. Aligned with the NGSS, these cell stations focus on these main ideas: levels of organization, structure and function of organelles, differences between plant and animal cells, and mitosis.Students will receive a packet to complete as they travel from station to station in groups.
Your students will be having fun and learning as they use their knowledge of cells and organelles to solve this fun mystery! This engaging activity is based on the classic board game “Clue”. This lesson makes reviewing or introducing cells and their organelles easy for you and fun for your students!
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) plays a major role in the biosynthesis of proteins. Proteins that are synthesized by ribosomes on the ER are transported into the Golgi apparatus for processing. Some of these proteins will be secreted from the cell, others will be inserted into the plasma membrane, and still others will be inserted into lysosomes.
