CELL-ebrate as your students study the topic of cells in an exciting yet integrated fashion. We study the differences between one-celled and multi-celled organisms. Characteristics and functions of cells are studied, as well as an investigation of tissues, organs, organ systems, and diffusion and osmosis. Student assignments include an amoeba-labelling exercise, cell reproduction, plant and animal cells, and a study of the bizarre nature of cancer cells.
