Cell Structure and Function


Life Science Interactive Notebook includes the following main concepts of cells:

• The Discovery of Cells
• The Plasma Membrane
• Eukaryotic Cell Structure
• Prokaryotic Cell Structure
• Cellular Transport

Students will be able to:

• State the cell theory
• Distinguish characteristics of prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells
• Describe the functions of the major cell structures
• Identify structures and explain the main functions of the cell membrane and cell wall
• Recognize scientists’ contributions to the discovery of the cell
• Understand effects of osmosis on cells in hypertonic solution, hypertonic solution, and isotonic solution

Each concept on cells shares:

• Actual photos of both the INPUT and OUTPUT pages of the Science Interactive Notebook
• Detailed instructions on how to create/use/complete activity for OUTPUT side
• Mini-Quizzes for each concept to check students’ understanding
• Answer Keys for all mini-quizzes
• Appendix with Teacher Notes for Interactive Notebook in LARGE print.

Activities included correlate with the Next Generation Science Standards and include the following:

• Cell History Timeline (Hooke, Redi, Schwann, Leeuvenhoek, Watson, Schleiden, Schwann, Morgan, Jansen)
• Plasma Membrane Bubble activity that shows flexible membrane, semi-permeable membrane, embedded proteins, selective permeability, structure of plasma membrane, fluid mosaic model
• Eukaryotic cell structure (animal and plant cell) school analogy of mitochondria, vacuole, nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, ribosome, golgi apparatus, cytoskeleton, lysosome, plasma membrane
• Prokaryotic cell structure (bacteria) - making a "Wanted Poster"
• Effects of osmosis on cells in hypertonic solution, hypotonic solution, isotonic solution picture sort
