Lesson date: 10/15

Course: Biology & Honors Biology

Length of period: 90 minutes

# of students: 18-33

I. Content

In this lesson, students will dive deeper into the structures of animals and plant cells. After doing the
analogy sheet last week, students will at least be familiar with the terms related to the structure of the

At this point, we will spend the 90 minute lesson learning the structural components in animal
and plant cells. Given that it is a CAPPA school and the students are emotional learners, we will
accomplish this with a coloring activity. The students will be provided with a sheet that lists all the
names of the parts with the uncolored cell, and they will color each part in as they choose. On their
sheet they must label what color it is so that they can build an association between the color and the
part, and then they will describe its function.

Given the amount of parts of the cell, they will do this in 90 minutes. This lesson will prepare
them for the rigorous jigsaw activity on Wednesday.

II. Standards

HS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting
systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms.

(HS-LS1-1) Systems of specialized cells within organisms help them perform the essential functions of

III. Prerequisites

Students are aware that cell is the basic unit of life. Students should understand that the study of cells
is one of the most important topics in Biology.

Students have discussed cell theory and know that it will be on Friday’s quiz

Students have been using the textbooks to gather information for the past 3 classes (except Thursday’s
quiz). They should be familiar with the chapter on cells and how to find information about the function
at this point.

Two classes did an analogy worksheet where they compared the structures in cells to what they know
about their own every day lives. They built a connection between the cell as a city and the greater

One class did not do the “analogy” worksheet and their understanding of the cell might be delayed.
Students will have viewed an onion and cheek cell under a microscope and seen the nucleus and cell.
They should understand that the circles they saw were the nucleus and will have a baseline for
understanding those structures.

Honors and the middle day of class will have gone over prokaryote and eukaryote through the textbook
but will not have specifically done the notes.

IV. Objectives

Students will be able to identify the major structures in the cells in order to understand the process of
creating a protein

Students will be able to differentiate the features of a plant and animal cells in order to understand the
different functions of each cell.

V. Students will go over the structures of cells and the differences in plant and animal cells

VI. Follow up Assignments: cell parts worksheets, cell parts project

VII. Materials and technology
a. Projector/smartboard
b. Powerpoint
c. to be determined
d. Textbook of biology
e. Coloring Worksheets
VIII. Assessment:
 cell parts quiz 10/19 on cell theory, organelle function and laballing the parts- there
is one question on the diseases they will learn about on Friday
 Honors is doing their project instead of having a quiz… don’t tell them that until late
next week- treat it like a bonus for hard work
 ESoL is going to create a review sheet for the other students instead of having a
quiz. Their review sheet should be finished by end of class on Wednesday

IX. Differentation
 ESoL will do the same lesson but on a bigger poster sheet to make a review
sheet for the other students to study off of- higher level ESoL will present it in
front of the students on Friday
 Honors has the QoW and their project- any extra time right now will be for their
project- perhaps the last half hour of class they will complete their first draft if
time allows
 Low level students should be ok for this lesson except the part with the
function- I will make a cheat sheet with the functions for them to copy down
rather than have to find by putting sticky notes up on pages of the textbook at
the location of the definition
