Cells

Learners will understand that cells 1. consist of many parts, each of which serves a specific function and 2. work together in order to allow our bodies to function. Learners will take a journey throughout the body, exploring the function of three main cell parts within different types of body cells. In a hands-on lab, students then discover the differences between plant and animal cells and create an analogy that synthesizes their understanding of cells. Students will use that understanding to design a unique cell, focusing on the connection between form and function.
