Product Description:

Recently updated with expanded content, the 2nd edition simply improves everything we've loved about the Anatomy and Physiology of Cells! Additional content includes an expanded look at the Cytoskeleton and Motor Proteins, more comprehension self-check questions, and some additional workbook activities. Book is divided into the Student Section and the Teacher Section. A dedicated You-Tube® playlist is available. While they are helpful, it is possible to use the curriculum without internet access. 210 pgs. Also available separately is the student section compiled into a single Student Text for those using for multiple students.

Publisher Description:

  • The concepts covered in this curriculum are considered “high school level.” However, they are presented in a manner that makes them accessible to younger students. The activities that go along with the text are a key part of making these concepts understandable to younger ages. Yes, it is worth it to gather the materials for the crafts and the labs!
  • If you are teaching grades 8-10, check out module 1 of my Mapping the Body with Art ecourse. It’s not identical to this Cells book, and goes into more detail about cellular respiration, does a quick review of prokaryotes and has lessons on egg, sperm and zygote.
  • Category Description for Ellen McHenry's Basement Workshop:

    Author Ellen McHenry is known for her straightforward approach to a variety of science topics. This curriculum is full of age-appropriate explanations, hands-on activities, and the familiar Ellen McHenry fingerprint characters and cartoons. The author discusses the difference between observable facts and inference, focusing on the facts. Courses are well-written, allowing children to understand more complex topics easily. Student activities vary and may include pencil-and-paperwork (like word puzzles or quizzes), internet links or a hands-on project. Illustrations are a mix of black and white, and color.

    One book is required for the course, and includes the reproducible Student Text with activities , and a Teacher Section. Additional Student Books are available for most courses. This is a great option for parents/teachers with multiple students-like in a co-op or classroom. Activity pages in the core book are reproducible for families or single classroom use. The author has set up a YouTube® channel with a myriad of short videos to accompany the courses. Worth mentioning, the courses are completely doable without this bonus internet content. An exceptional science option for upper elementary and middle school ages to learn topics with more depth compared to many other science programs.

    In our opinion McHenry did a GREAT job on this program! At the end of the lessons you're excited to learn more There are 9 chapters that give a detailed introduction to some of the functions of a cell (see sample pages from Student Text) The author draws many organelles and molecules in various ways so that the student can understand how they work At the end of the chapters and book the author lists many online videos that show the processes she just described McHenry has set up a youtube account that links to each of these videos in order Also for each chapter the author gives instructions for several activities games and crafts to reinforce the knowledge in the text Some are for one student and others are for a whole class The text comes with a CD of many printouts The program is very teacher-friendly The chapter quiz is right at the end of the chapter text in the main book The answers are listed in the teacher section at the end of the main book My 7th grader was very uninterested in learning about cells I bought this book anyway He was hooked by the second chapter and reminds me if we forget to study Cells The author doesn't touch the topic of origins but a few times mentions something like "Wow what an amazing design" (Some of the recommended videos may mention evolution; But after you watch some of these cell functions you have to consider Intelligent Design) As a home school mom I believe the suggested grade level 5-9 is good High school students probably wouldn't be bored with the program if it was completed in a semester
