1.Â Â Â (5 minutes) Complete/collect Do Now
Diversity of Plant and Animal Cells .ppt
2.Â Â Â (3 minutes) Students will independently answer the following questions presented on the ppt on their CW.
- What types of cells are there? (animal, plant, bacteria)
- What are the four functions of cells? (eating, breathing, getting rid of waste; grow)
3.Â Â Â (2-3 minutes) Cold call students for these answers.
4.Â Â Â Advance .ppt to next slide to show answers.
5.Â Â Â (5-6 minutes) Review cell theory. Students will take the following notes from the ppt.
- If it is alive, it is made up of cells.Â
- That means that all the plants, and all the animals in the world are composed of cells.
- This includes us.
- We are made up of cells because we are alive.
- What types of cells can you find in humans?
6.Â Â Â (6-10 minutes) Over the course of the next 6 slides, students will be exposed to different cells, mostly from the human body. Students will see an image of the cell and an image of the organ the cell is located within.
7.Â Â Â (8 minutes) Following these 6 slides, students will have to turn to their partner and determine what the function is of each of the previous six cells.
- Eye cell â€“ helps an organism to see
- Muscle cell â€“ helps an organism to move
- Nerve cell â€“ helps an organism to react to its environment
- Hair cell â€“ helps to keep an organism warm; react to its environment
- Skin cell â€“ helps to protect the organism
- Bone cell â€“ helps to give the organism structure; create blood for the organism
8.Â Â Â (4-6 minutes) Class discussion to determine the function of the six cells.
9.Â Â Â (5-6 minutes) Return to cell theory. Students will take the following notes from the .ppt.
- Â Cells are the basic unit of structure and function in all living things.
- It means that cells make up all living things
- Basically itâ€™s saying that cells give shape to all organisms.
- And that the functions performed by cells keep organisms alive.
- If cells make up all living things, this means it also makes up all plants as well as all animals.
10.Â (4 minutes) Students will return to .ppt to view 4 different types of plant cells. Students will compile a list.
11.Â (5 minutes) Recapping the lesson, students will independently answer the following questions:
- What are the four functions of cells?
- What are three types of cells found in people?
- What are three types of cells found in plants?
- What are the three parts to cell theory?
