This lesson is the first of two-part series on cells. In Cells 1: Make a Model Cell, students will compare a plant and animal cell and then make a model of a cell. They will select items to represent various cell structures and justify their choices by describing how the items they have chosen represent the actual parts of a cell. Prior to this lesson, students should have at least been introduced to cells, including the basic differences between plant and animal cells.

In this Focus on Math blog entry, Carollee Norris describes how she uses a 100-dot array to develop number sense and mental math skills. As she covers some rows (and later rows and parts of rows) on a projected grid, students learn to identify quickly the number of rows and dots that are visible, as well as how many are hidden (to complete 100). Through practice, children are able to visualize the structure of the array and apply it to mental math and problem solving tasks.
