Using appropriate scientific vocabulary, students will draw, label and describe the differences between plant and animal cells. Students will observe and record the differences in the cell structures of plants and animals. Students will identify stages of cellular differentiation in the development of organisms. Students will explain, using appropriate scientific vocabulary, how cells divide. Students will create a model of a specialized cell and labels its parts. Students will sequence the levels of cellular organization in multicellular organisms. Students will verbally describe the levels of cellular organization in multi-cellular organisms. Students will identify and verbally justify the sequence of images of the levels of cellular organization in organisms.
