Label the Parts of the Plant and Animal Cell

This worksheet helps students learn the parts of the cell. It includes a diagram of an animal cell and a plant cell for labeling.  Students also label a diagram showing how proteins are produced by ribosomes, transported via the endoplasmic reticulum, and finally packaged by the Golgi apparatus.  

I designed for AP Biology students, but could be used with beginning students. There are simpler versions of cell labeling that I use with freshman, like this drag-and-drop cell labeling.

I often do these kinds of activities in class, where I give students 15-20 minutes to complete the exercise. We can then go over the answers together. I have a whiteboard where I can project the image and students then write the answers on the board as we go over it. Kids love writing on the whiteboard!

You can find the images on Wikimedia commons where they have labels. If giving students this assignment as homework or an assessment, they can easily find the answers online. Though, I did make some modifications, so they would need to pay attention to details.

If you are looking for a remote lesson to support students learning about the cell, I recommend this video by the Amoeba Sisters.
