Teacher Review for Build-a-Cell

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.

How I Use It
I use this right after I've introduced cells.
My Take
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.
