What is a cell?

Admit Slip: You have been asked to teach a 1st grade class about cells. What would you say? How would you explain what a cell is?

Objective: 1. Students will be able to differentiate between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. 2. Students will be able to state the three components of cell theory (all living things are made of 1 or more cells, the cell is the smallest unit of life that retains the properties of life and all cells come from pre-existing cells). B block only: students will practice using a microscope by completing the e-Microscope lab

Honors: Find and bring in a picture taken with either an SEM or TEM. Be able to identify if the picture is from SEM or TEM. Bonus points if nobody else in the class has the same picture as you.
General: Find and bring in pictures of a prokaryotic, eukaryotic, animal and plant cell.
