Cellular Organization  Cellular organization can be complicated to teach; however if you relate it to an everyday concept, like a cookie factory, the students will be able to understand. These two PowerPoints contain information on animal and plant cells. The Cellular Organization PowerPoint contains two mini games that allow the students to match cell structure to its function.
