Cells Alive!

I could use this site to enhance my lessons on plant and animal cells. This site allows for the differentiation of teaching especially for those students who need visual, hands on learning. 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.
