Cell Book Project
|The following is an outline of the
contents of the cell book.
The cell book must include a cover with a title and original color artwork.
This could be an assignment for everyone and then choose the one the class likes the best
or each student can use their own cover.
A Creative Title other than Cell Book can be used.
|Table of Contents:
The table of contents should include the following items in this order:
||Biological drawing of plant and
||Description of all cell organelles
||Comparison of animal cells and plant
||Cells processes for storing and
|Red Blood Cells
White Blood Cell
||Vessel Cells/Stem Cells
||Seeds and Pollen
||Questions & Answer on
Cells: Fun Page
Responsible for creating an accurate Table of Contents in the above order.
Pages will be numbered. WAIT UNTIL THE END TO DO THIS.
Begin by creating a Table of Contents without page numbers.
The introduction should include at least 2
paragraphs to introduce the book.
The first paragraph should be a basic paragraph about cells.
The second paragraph should introduce readers to the book and the purpose of the book.
Include the signatures of all the students creating the Cell Book in the
introdeuction. BE CREATIVE
|II. Generalized Drawings of Plant
& Animals Cells:
The cell book
should include generalized drawings of plant cells and animals cells with all the
One page for each cell.
Old Prentice Hall pp.73-74 is a great reference.
Use Rules for Biological Drawings to
complete these diagrams
|III. Cell Organelles: mini-Poster
Each organelle should have its own page.
Prentice Hall pp. 71-81
You are designing a mini-Poster on an organelle
mini-Poster should include:
- One page for each organelle
- A picture and /or diagram of your cell
organelle should be included
- In what type of cell is your organelle found?
- What is the organelle's composition or
structure? (a diagram may be helpful)
- What is your organelle's function and
why is it important?
- What are the mechanisms of this
function? How is it regulated?
- What would happen if a cell didn't have
Membrane: p.45 and p.58 McDougal Littell Life Science Nice picture!
Cell Wall p.72
Chloroplasts Old Prentice Hall p.80
Endoplasmic Reticulum Old Prentice Hall p.76-77
Lysosomes Old Prentice-Hall pp.79-80
Mitochondria Old Prentice Hall pp.78-79 Good
Nucleus Old Prentice Hall p.74-76
Ribosomes Old Prentice Hall p.77-78 Good
Vacuole Old Prentice Hall p.79
|IV. Comparison of Plant and Animal
Create a mini-poster
to show the similarities and differences.
Your mini-poster will include:
a chart listing the organelles for both the plant and animal cell
a Venn diagram showing the comparison of organelles in each type of cell
Explain why certain organelles are found only in certain types of cells.
Indicate the chloroplasts are found mostly in the leaves of the plants and explain why
they are less common in root and stem cells.
|V. Cells Processes for
Storing and Releasing Energy: mini-Poster
Create a mini-poster that teaches:
the process of photosynthesis
process of cellular respiration.
You will include a diagram and/ or picture
Compare and contrast the two processes.
Old Prentice Hall pp.82-83 Respiration
50, 80, 81 Photosynthesis
McDougal Littell pp.48-54 A Good Picture p.52
p.68 A Diagram
|Animal Cells VI. and Plant Cells
Create a mini-poster that shows different cells.
Describe the cell:
structure (size, shape, presence
and quantity of certain organelles)
purpose or job of the cell.
Relate the structure and function
of the cell.
Include a drawing or diagram.
All drawings need to be hand drawn but, tracing is okay.

Questions & Answers on Cells: Fun Page(s)
This is like most science
books. You (The Book) ask a question and then give you the answer. The answers
can be on the same page or on another page. You should add other questions. Think
liked a game or quiz show.
Could also be a Fun Page with a crossword puzzle, word search, Interesting Cell Facts, or
Art work can be added to enhance your page(s).
May be more than 1 page.
Is a Virus a Cell? No, they
don't take in food or get rid of wastes.
Is a virus alive? Yes ( moves, reproduces and No.
Name the human body organ that corresponds
to the nucleus. Brain
Make a list of all the page titles.
Writers and artists will give you a bibliography for
each refeence used in their
Standard bibliography: Title of article, Publication,
Need to be in alphabetical order.
This could be typed and printed on a computer.
How cells function,
Encyclopedia Britanica, 2004
Plant Cell Diagram, Illustaration, Smith, John;
By individual, by group or by class.
Research in the library and the computer lab. Give each group one part of the
project. Each group would receive all information for that part of the book.
Each group would work as a team to produce a product ( one part of the book) for the
As individuals each student could do one page (part) of the book.
