Video: The Living Cell

Join Jenna and Tony in an impromptu game of "cell-ebrity squares" to learn about the structure and functions of plant and animal cells. With help from knowledgeable "cell-ebrities," and actual cell footage, students learn about the characteristics of living things, the parts of a cell, cell theory, diffusion and osmosis, and active and passive transport. Inspire students to learn more with their own game of "cell-ebrity squares."

Student Application

Play "cell-ebrity" squares to learn about the structure and functions of plant and animal cells.


Learning Objectives
