As students learn about basic plant and animal cells, doing a hands-on experiment is a great way for them to observe the differences in real things. The Onion-Cheek Experiment is a simple introductory experiment to help students practice using the microscope while they examine the differences and similarities between cells.
Students will use this worksheet to record their hypothesis, observations, and any conclusions they can make about basic cells. It is set up for just observing onion cells and cheek cells, but can be added to include additional cells for observation.
