This article looks at the basic similarities and differences between animal and plant cells, and the functions of different organelles, and how cells are comparison of plant and animal cells the teachers, cleaners, lab technicians, office staff, management and teaching assistants do different jobs. Some of the smallest organisms, such as yeast and bacteria, are single-celled organisms, but most plants and animals are multicellular while both plants and animals are made up of cells, the two types of cell are markedly different in ways that can be readily observed many of the differences between. Biology lab comparing plant and animal cells names: purpose: to further the students understanding of cells and to give them the experience of using a microscope materials: microscope, microscope slide, cover slip, toothpick, onion, iodine stain, methylene blue stain, dropper bottle of water procedure: onion cells. Biotechnol prog 2002 nov-dec18(6):1377-86 a lab-built respirometer for plant and animal cell culture lamboursain l(1), st-onge f, jolicoeur m author information: (1)bio-p2 research unit, department of chemical engineering, ecole polytechnique de montréal, po box 6079, centreville station, montréal, québec. Professor mill ennium has left the discovery lab in the hands his trusty lab assistants as one of his assistants, you find yourself exploring the lab for the first time on your own how you tell the difference between plant and animal cells scientists have discovered differences between plant and animal cell organelles. Plant vs animal cells inquiry investigation: comparing plant and animal cells a formal lab report investigating differences between plant and animal cells purpose the purpose of this experiment is to determine the difference between plant and animal cells. What are the differences between plant cells, animal cells and bacterial cells the two main types of biological cells are prokaryotic cells (also called prokaryotes and bacterial cells) and eukaryotic cells (also called eukaryotes, which include plant cells and animal cells) this page includes a table listing the differences. This is also the case when looking at tissues from plants or animals that are two or more cell layers deep (cells in one layer will be in focus at higher magnification , while those in other layers will be blurry) in this lab, students should be able to obtain isolated single cheek cells however, they may end up with overlapping.
Comparison of plant & animal cells plant cell illustration animal cell illustration eukaryotic cell definitions evolution & the origin of life in fact, some biologists believe that mitochondria and chloroplasts within eukaryotic animal and plant cells may have originated from ancient symbiotic bacteria that were once. Take learning to the next level and transform the way you teach with a vast library of ready-to-use, standards-aligned, adaptable curriculum resources. Cell structure a comparison of cells commonly seen in lab bacteria: prokaryotic very small no nucleus, no chloroplasts, no mitochondria do have a cell wall plant cells: eukaryotic relatively large have a nucleus, have mitochondria, sometimes have chloroplasts have a large central vacuole and a cell wall animal.
All organisms are made up of cells all cells have some things in common however, some key differences exist between the cells that make up plants and the cells that make up animals in this lab, you will examine plant cells and animal cells, noting their similarities and differences materials procedure 1 put on safety. Students will use a compound microscope to examine a variety of cells from the plant, animal, fungi, and bacteria kingdoms lab: cell survey objectives to see the differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells to gain more experience using the microscope to view cells from the following kingdoms: plant,. 2 the main structural differences between plant and animal cells are the additional structures found in plant cells these structures include: chloroplasts, the cell wall, and vacuoles chloroplasts in animal cells, the mitochondria produces the majority of the cells energy from food plant cells use sunlight as.
Comparing plant & animal cells page 1 of2 comparing flant and animal celes problem: how are plant and animal cells alike how are they different procedure: in this lab, you will view cells from your cheek (animal cells) and cells from elodea, which is a water plant careful observation should reveal similarities and. Plant and animal cell lab purpose: compare and contrast plant and animal cells materials needed onion slides cover slips microscope needle water iodine eyedroppers toothpick (flat or blunt) procedure plant cell step 1:with the needle, peel the thin clear tissue from the inside section of an onion step 2: carefully.
Lab: comparing plant and animal cells b i o l o g y i purpose: 1 use staining techniques to identify some of the basic structures found in animal and plant cells 2 describe the similarities and differences between plant and animal cells part i onion cells 1 do the cells appear to have cell walls 2 where is the. So the question really ought to be what are the major differences between plant and animal cells it may be that you looked at onion cells and cheek cells in the lab and were then asked to answer that question lab reports and questions should be answered mainly on what really happened during the lab period. Comparing plant and animal cells pre-lab discussion: ever since the first microscope was used, biologists have been interested in studying the cellular organization of all living things after hundreds of years of observations by many biologists, the cell theory was developed the cell theory states that the cell is the.
In this lesson, students compare a plant and animal cell and then make a model of a cell. Comparing plant and animal cells lab (1) - free download as word doc (doc), pdf file (pdf), text file (txt) or read online for free. Ask the students to list any differences they see between the two images have the this student-centered station lab is set up so students can begin to explore animal and plant cells four of the students will be comparing two diagrams of plant and animal cells and will try to identify the differences and similarities.

Sep resource center - specimen slides of blood cells and any other body cells sep resource center - slide viewers and slide sets of different cell types cells of the body and comparing plant and animal cells samples to look at under the microscope - elodea leaves, onion skin peels, hair strands, etc movies from. Before exploring the details of cell structure, let's understand the differences in the structure of an onion cell and a human cheek cell the presence of a cell wall is what provides the most significant difference between plant and animal cells, as it is present only in plant cells and covers the cell membranethe cell wall is.
Animal cells and plant cells have features in common, such as a nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and 31 compare the structure and function of prokaryotic cells (bacteria) and eukaryotic cells (plant, animals, etc) cell observation is a guided lab for students to examine cells under a microscope. This unit focuses on the similarities and differences in plant and animal cells in the first activity, students create 3d cell models in order to have a concrete example of this concept the second activity is the teaching portion of the unit that focuses on the characteristics of plant and animal cells the third activity is the lab. To review the main parts of a cell, using your textbook as a reference before you leave at the end of the laboratory period you should know the parts of a microscope and how to determine total magnification you should be able to recognize the organelles in a plant and an animal cell, and recall the functions of each.
