Eigth Graders investigate cells

On Wednesday February 12, science teacher Amy Dobbins taught her class about the organelles in cells. Dobbins handed student microscopes to view inside cells. Students saw the nucleus the cell brain, the cell membrane, which separates the interior of a cell from the exterior and more.

Dobbins gave every student a handout at the beginning of the class, to record information they find out about these cells. This worksheet gives examples of what organelles do inside of cells and how each of them separately function.  Credit: Jenny Beardsley Manchester Essex Multimedia Online
