Next are nineteen full-color fact cards that illustrate each of these parts of a cell, define each part, and list whether it is found in animal cells, plant cells, or both.
The unit also includes nineteen black and white fact cards with illustrations of the nineteen parts of the cell covered. Students can then fill in the definition/function of each part and list whether it is found in animal cells, plant cells, or both. They can also color the illustrations on each card if they choose.
