The Cell Theory - An Introduction. Everything you need to introduce or review The Cell Theory is right here including the lesson (student and teacher versions), 3 online simulations, 1 embedded video and a student lesson handout. This lesson introduces the subject of Biology then discusses some Cell Facts, a few of the key scientists that developed the Cell Theory, The H of the Cell Theory as well as its modern day interpretation. It concludes by briefly comparing Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells.
Inside the lesson package you'll find:
- The teacher version of the power point
- The student version of the power point
- 3 online simulations
- 1 embedded video
- Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
- A brief Biology introduction
- Cell Facts
- Cell theory scientists
- The history of cell discovery
- The original Cell Theory
- The modern Cell Theory
- A brief comparison between Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells
The student version of the power point contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
