Learning Objective
At the end of the lesson, you will be able to label the parts of a cell.

Slide 2 - Slide

Introduce the learning objective to the students. Explain that by the end of the lesson, they will have a solid understanding of the different components of a cell and be able to accurately label them.
What do you already know about the parts of a cell?

Slide 1: Introduction
Cells are the building blocks of life. They are incredibly small, but each cell is packed with various parts that perform specific functions. Let's explore these parts!

Slide 6 - Slide

Provide a brief introduction to the topic of cell parts. Emphasize the importance of cells and their fundamental role in living organisms.
Slide 2: Cell Membrane
The cell membrane is the outermost layer of a cell. It acts as a barrier, controlling the movement of substances in and out of the cell.

Slide 7 - Slide

Explain the function of the cell membrane and its significance in maintaining the cell's internal environment. Encourage students to visualize the cell membrane as a protective boundary.
Slide 3: Nucleus
The nucleus is like the control center of the cell. It contains the cell's DNA and directs the cell's activities.

Slide 8 - Slide

Describe the nucleus as the central command center of the cell. Highlight its role in storing genetic information and orchestrating cellular functions.
Slide 4: Cytoplasm
The cytoplasm is a gel-like substance that fills the cell. It holds the cell's organelles in place and facilitates various chemical reactions.

Slide 9 - Slide

Explain the cytoplasm as the jelly-like substance that fills the cell. Emphasize its supportive role in holding organelles and enabling essential cellular processes.
Slide 5: Mitochondria
Mitochondria are known as the powerhouse of the cell. They generate energy by converting nutrients into ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

Slide 10 - Slide

Introduce mitochondria as the energy-producing organelles. Discuss their importance in providing the required energy for cellular activities.
Slide 6: Endoplasmic Reticulum
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a network of membranes that transports proteins and lipids within the cell.

Slide 11 - Slide

Describe the endoplasmic reticulum as a transportation system within the cell. Emphasize its role in protein and lipid synthesis and distribution.
Slide 7: Golgi Apparatus
The Golgi apparatus modifies, sorts, and packages proteins and lipids for transport to their final destinations inside or outside the cell.

Slide 12 - Slide

Explain the Golgi apparatus as the processing and packaging center of the cell. Discuss its involvement in modifying and sorting cellular products.
Slide 8: Conclusion
Congratulations! You have explored the major parts of a cell. Now, it's time to put your knowledge to the test by labeling a cell diagram.

Slide 13 - Slide

Summarize the key points covered in the lesson. Encourage students to reinforce their understanding by completing a labeling activity.
Write down 3 things you learned in this lesson.

Slide 14 - Open question

Have students enter three things they learned in this lesson. With this they can indicate their own learning efficiency of this lesson.
Write down 2 things you want to know more about.

Slide 15 - Open question

Here, students enter two things they would like to know more about. This not only increases involvement, but also gives them more ownership.
Ask 1 question about something you haven't quite understood yet.

Slide 16 - Open question

The students indicate here (in question form) with which part of the material they still have difficulty. For the teacher, this not only provides insight into the extent to which the students understand/master the material, but also a good starting point for the next lesson.
