Product Details

Every living organism consists of one of two types of cells—prokaryotic or eukaryotic. Discover the key features that differentiate living things as prokaryotes or eukaryotes and how these features benefit their survival. Students observe and analyze four different samples of cell types on microscope slides. Then they sketch their observations and determine whether the cells are prokaryotic or eukaryotic based on physical features. A great activity to learn about cells and practice microscopy technique!Includes eight microscope slides, two of each sample to set up eight lab stations. Includes comprehensive background information, reproducible student worksheets, and informative Teacher Notes.

Performance Expectations

MS-LS1-1. Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells
MS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.
HS-LS1-1. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
HS-LS4-4. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how natural selection leads to adaptation of populations.
