An alternative activity to the “Parts of a Cell” labeling poster would be for students to simply label each type of cell separately. In this activity, students will create a spider map identifying and describing the structure of plant cells. The colorable plant cell in the Storyboard Creator will allow students to easily highlight each part of the cell.
|Cell Membrane||Where protein synthesis occurs|
|Cell Wall||Made of cellulose and strengthens the cell|
|Chloroplast||Contains chlorophyll and it is where photosynthesis happens|
|Cytoplasm||Where the majority of the activities take place|
|Mitochondria||Where the majority of respiration takes place|
|Nucleus||Contains DNA and controls the functions of the cell|
|Ribosome||Where protein synthesis occurs|
|Vacuole||A space filled with cell sap which keeps the cell turgid|
