Investigation Question(s) How big is a cell? Are all cells alike? How do they compare in size, structure, and function? MA Science Framework Life Science: Grades 6 to 8 Structure and Function of Cells 3. Compare and contrast plant and animal cells, including major organelles (cell membrane, cell

wall, nucleus, cytoplasm, chloroplasts, mitochondria, vacuoles). Typical Cell Diagrams Investigation Goals(s) Students will develop an appreciation for the diversity and complexity of cells in living things Students will recognize differences and similarities in size, structure, and

function among cells Students will understand basic cell structure and function Overview & Time Students analyze digital images of cells, measuring lengths of a variety of cells From 1 to 2 class periods up to a week Data & Analysis Tools Images of cells with scale bars ImageJ
