Cells Alive!

Logo for Cells Alive!
This site provides information about cell components (such as cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, cytoskeleton, cytosol, mitochondrion, chloroplast, peroxisome, lysosome, vacuole, etc.) and cell division (meiosis, and mitosis), as well as beautiful images in cell biology. Video and still pictures of various types of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells are included. A great animation on how bacteria grow and divide is an added plus for this site.

I use this resource as part of a WebQuest for non-major students to learn more about the Cell Cycle. I have students watch the animations and label the structures in a Mitosis diagram. It looks like they have added a few new features, including genetics resources which I will have to come back to as I teach that topic as well.

This website is useful because of its' interactive qualities. Students will be able to use these to help with visual learning, also with learning and understanding where something is used. This will be highly useful for the classroom.

All I am getting is advertising rather than getting to the plant cell model. Boo How!

I found this site informative and easy to understand for students who have difficulty understanding the basics of the cell structure. I also refer students to this site who would like to refresh their memory on cell structure. Students love it!!

I spent about 20 minutes browsing the site including the quiz on cell structure. The content is very useful for my microbiology course I will teach for respiratory care students.
It was easy to use.
