Looking for a diverse range of cell activities to captivate your students and enhance your students’ experience when it comes to exploring cells and cell theory? Tired of facilitating the same old cells lessons that students have seen year after year?

You're in the right place!

I understand your struggles to teach cells in a fun, interactive, and engaging way to high schoolers. My biology students were tired of lessons geared more towards younger kids, so I have developed fun and multimodal cell activities and cell theory ideas tailored specifically for high school students. These resources ignite students’ enthusiasm for engaging with cells and cell theory by providing the depth and interactivity necessary for them to create meaningful connections in the realm of cell biology.

Are you ready for easy to use CELLS activities that prepare your students FOR SUCCESS?

Introducing our comprehensive high school cells and cell theory resource bundle, designed to empower both students and educators with a wealth of knowledge and engaging materials to explore the fascinating world of biology. Whether you're a new or experienced teacher looking to enrich your curriculum, this collection is your one-stop solution for unlocking the mysteries of cells and cell theory.

Cells Lab Stations


“Students loved these cell activities! My students loved the interactive cell building, and the reading comprehension with timeline were spot on. Thank you!”

“I loved the stations because my students could independently learn at each station. It really helped my students understand the material and kept them engaged!”

Your students will learn about cell theory, cell discovery, types of cells, and cell organelles in this fun and engaging student-led lab stations lab activity. 10 cells stations introduce and teach these fundamental cell biology standards. All stations are neatly presented, have easy to understand directions, and require minimal prep from you.

Cells PowerPoint


“Activities are very engaging, and student enjoyed reviewing for an assessment. The Kahoot was fabulous. I like the idea of having a Kahoot as a formative assessment of the lesson. Looking forward to using more of your resources!”

    what teachers have had to say...

    “This was a life saver! The slides, with accompanying notes, and activities saved me a lot of time and stress. The students enjoyed the stations labs, and the way in which it allowed them to work at their own pace. This became more student focused learning instead of teacher led, and it helped with classroom management for me since my class has so many different abilities. Even if a student was absent, I could assign them work they could do themselves and not get behind.”

    Happy Sciencing from Science is Real!
