This is a great instructional tool that allows students to work at their own pace and get information to compare the cell structures of bacterial, animal, and plant cells. It is easy to use and go back and forth between slides. The cell parts are compared to real life examples and are easy to relate to for students. There is audio that reads the slide so that if anyone has trouble with comprehension they can have it read to them since the vocabulary is difficult. There are some videos which show actual cells in motion and structure which are quite neat. There is a great deal of content in this resource so you would need to set up several lessons to go through everything. Also there is no autocorrect or tool that states additional information if you get something right or wrong on the last chart. Overall this is an excellent all around resource for students and teachers. Great work! I spent 30 minutes reviewing this lesson.

Technical Remarks:

Uses powerpoint in regular mode and has audio and external media sources.  Make sure computer allows for external media.

Great interactive resource for students learning about cells.  You have great visuals showing the different parts of the cells, but I really enjoyed how you used images to help the students better understand the job of the different cell organelles.  Since you have students 'click' to get the answers, I would recommend using this as a cell study guide or have students partner when reviewing the interaction.  Each partner can keep score on the number of answers the other gets right or wrong.  This might help ensure they are not simply clicking through mindlessly.
