The structure separating an animal cell from its environment or a plant cell from its cell wall. The cell membrane is a complex system that allows nutrients to enter the cell and waste products to leave, usually through osmosis.
Help students learn and remember the parts of the plant cell using this diagram crossword. BONUS ACTIVITY: When they've completed the crossword, get them to cut out the diagram, glue it on a separate page and label the parts of the diagram. This activity would work well within an interactive notebook as well. It can function as an assessment of learning, or it can serve as another reinforcement activity. Afterwards, they have a handy labeled diagram to help them review.
