Great online interactive for animal and plant cell learning! Great info. Not spectacular but better than looking at a diagram. Get to build it yourself.
Build-a-cell is a great tool for right when you introduce the topic of cells. It has a lot of great information about animal and plant cell components. I use it with my 6th graders and it is not the coolest thing they will do but it is definitely better than just looking at a diagram. I like that the actually have to build the cell and put all the organelles together. The above average rating that teachers and Common Sense Education gives this app is accurate.
How I Use It
I use this right after I've introduced cells.
