For a class of 30 working in groups of 3. This kit contains 3 activities that highlight the structure and function of eukaryotes, prokaryotes, and viruses.

In the first activity, students design a cell or virus by selecting traceable structures and organelles, and then name the type of drawn cell or virus and describe its characteristics. Next, students trade drawings and practice classification using a dichotomous key.

In the second activity, students practice microscope techniques and hone their observation skills by documenting various morphologies of bacteria and the parasitism of tobacco mosaic virus on a leaf.

In the third activity, students observe Amoeba feeding on Chilomonas, allowing them to visualize functioning organelles and the concept of endocytosis. Provided background information illuminates the leading theories of evolution and the relationship among eukaryotes, prokaryotes, and viruses.
