Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

A View of the Cell


This unit, using videos, an interactive program, and research, allows exploration of the cell from the first of observation to the cell to the final project of describing how the parts of the cell interact and work together as a function of the cell. This is the first time students have been asked to achieve this level of understanding of the cell.

Learning Targets: 
1. Explain how advances in microscope technology has led to advances made in identifying cell structure and cell processes.
2. Compare and contrast a compound light microscope to an electron microscope.
3. Explain the main points/ideas of cell theory.
4. Identify, analyze, the two basic cell types and explain the differences between the two.
See the attached lesson for the rest.
