This lesson is based around Pokemon. Using Pokemon such as Bulbsaur and Oddish as these would have both animal and plant cells.
Pupils first are given a number of Pokemon and decide which doesn't belong. They then do a literal word search for the names of the organelles in cells.
Back-to-back: pupils then play back-to-back. This involves one pupils facing the board, while the other faces the other way with a mini whiteboard. The pupil facing the board describes the image that they see and the one not facing the board draws it. Give a time limit for each.
Pupils then do a simple table exercise based on what they've learned from drawing the cells.
Pupils then read through a song, or sing it to the Pokemon theme tune, and do the instructions on the sheet. They also label images of cells.
Pupils then read through statements to decide if Euglena is an animal or plant cell.
Finally, pupils complete a poster task comparing both types of cells (this can be done as a homework)
