Organelles of the Cell – Notebook Pages

The past week, we reviewed the organelles of the cell and talke about the function each plays in the cell. I made a set of animal cell review sheets for the kids: I have added these new pages to our Study of Cells Packet. This was a unit we first did a couple of years ago.  When we did that unit, we went into a lot of detail about how...

Homeschool Science: Year in Review and What’s Coming Up

When I think about all we’ve done this past year in 2015 in science, I’m really pretty amazed! It’s been a fun, full year!  This post has links to dozens of our science experiments, printables and hands-on activities. You’ll find direct links to the posts in the table below. We managed to squeeze in various engineering (STEM) type activities here and there. In January of 2015 we were in the...

Photosynthesis Worksheets

This week  we spent a few days talking about photosynthesis.  We covered the basic differences between plant and animal cells last week and I wanted to briefly talk about the process of photosynthesis before moving on to our Human Body unit. Some of the things we talked about included as we learned about the process of photosynthesis: parts of the plant, plant cells and the plant organelles, what is needed for...

Cell Unit: Cell Organelles and their Function, Animal vs. Plant Cells, Eurkaryotic vs. Prokaryotic Cells, and more

We have had such an amazing time with this cell unit. The goal has been not only to help the kids learn the parts of the cells (organelles), their function, and the difference between animal and plant cells, but also to understand the process of protein synthesis (on a kid level). Most cells have billions of proteins  and we learned just how these proteins are made by the cell organelles. We...
