It's the most fundamental comparison in biology-plants versus animals. In this two-part activity, students will identify and label the parts of both animal and plant cells to better understand their function and variance between the two types of cells. Students will then prepare and stain their own plant and animal cell microscope slides. This lesson comes full circle as students compare and contrast their sketches of the prepared slides. A great introductory activity to teach about plant and animal cells!
Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Super Value Kit is complete for 5 classes of 30 students working in pairs. Compound microscopes and a raw onion are required and not provided.
