: in this lab you will observe cell structures, compare and contrast animal and plant cells and relate the structure of a cell to its function materials: glass slides, cover slips, pipette, water, microscope, toothpick, onion, elodea plant in water, methylene blue, iodine solution, paper towel. Biology 3a lab scopes & cells page 2 of 10 functional parts of the microscope: materials: microscope, lens paper, letter “e” slide, color thread slide, 1 mm gridline slide procedure: 1 remove the microscope from the scopes cabinet and return to your work area 2 make sure that you use both hands to support the microscope (arm and base) 3. First we placed the slide under the simple microscope and observed it at ten times magnification level lab report testing the effects of changing surcrose concentration on osmosis in plant cells - lab report testing the effects of changing surcrose concentration on osmosis in plant cells aim to investigate the effects of changing the.
Plant vs animal cells lab have students compare and contrast animal and plant cells using a microscope here are the materials and protocol: microscope lab activities related study materials. Lab 3: microscope and cells (revised fall 2009) lab 3 - biol 211 - page 4 of 26 techniques for setting up & viewing objects with a compound light microscope be familiar with the following procedures outlining the correct usage of the microscope before coming to lab. Lab: plant cells vs animal cells introduction background information: ever since the first microscope was used, biologists have been interested in studying the cellular organization of all living things after hundreds of years of observations by many biologists, the cell theory was developed.
Histology is the microscopic study of plant and animal tissues although all organisms are composed of at least although all organisms are composed of at least one cell, we will be concentrating on observing cells and tissues of the human body. If you have any prepared animal slides (like blood or tissue cells) have students view them under the microscope have students compare and contrast the structures/shapes of the different cells. Lab exercise: histology (revised spring, 2012), page 1 of 17 histology a microscopic study of human body tissues and mitotic cells introduction: histology is the microscopic study of plant and animal tissues although all organisms are composed of at least.
The cell wall provides support and rigidity to plant cells and often gives them a rectangular or even hexagonal appearance when observed in a microscope plant cells have a rigid, regular shape. Cheek cell lab – observe cheek cells under the microscope cheek cell virtual lab – virtual microscope view of cells plant cell lab – microscope observation of onion and elodea plant cell lab makeup – can be done at home or at the library plant cell virtual lab – use a virtual microscope to view plant cells. Microscopic study of animal and plant cells lab lab 2: animal and plant cells purpose: to examine the differences between single cell and multi cell organisms in terms of animal and plant cells. Lab 2 animal cells and tissues animal cells- light microscope detailed study of cell structure requires the use of the election microscope few in the following activity, you will study cell ultrastructure based on electron micrographs and drawings the plasma membrane the cell has many membranes the plasma membrane separates the.
Video: the difference between plant and animal cells while both plant and animal cells are eukaryotic and share many similarities, they also differ in several ways learn about the key differences. Plant cell virtual lab – use a virtual microscope to view plant cells comparing plant and animal cells – looks at cheek and onion cells investigation: what are the different types of cells – survey of different kinds of cells, cheek, blood, onion root, leaf. Human cheek epithelial cell (animal cell) nucleus cell membrane magnification: 100x cytoplasm same as the plant cell46 we can clearly see cytoplasm most of the general parts of a eukaryotic plant cell we can see general and important parts of the eukaryotic cell.
Biology 3a laboratory microscopes and cells objectives • to learn the similarities and differences between plant and animal cells it allowed scientists to study the structure of a living organism and to discover numerous species that were not visible to the unaided eye. Lab: plant cells vs animal cells introduction background information: ever since the first microscope was used, biologists have been interested in studying the cellular.
The animal cell structure is the most prominent in human cheek cells the onion skin cell, an example of a plant cell, generally has a rigid, rectangular shape the onion skin cells were positioned beside each other (length touching length, width touching width) and formed a checkered pattern. Students should also be familiar with the structure of the cell, organelles, and the differences between plant and animal cells knowledge of osmosis and hypertonic solutions is helpful, but not required. Lab 2 animal cells and tissues cell structure animal cells- light microscope detailed study of cell structure requires the use of the election microscope few study details of cell structure in the following activity, you will study cell ultrastructure.
