Standard(s) Taught

SC.6.L.14.2 Investigate and explain the components of the scientific theory of cells (cell theory): all organisms are composed of cells (single-celled or multi-cellular), all cells come from pre-existing cells, and cells are the basic unit of life.

SC.6.N.3.1  Recognize and explain that a scientific theory is a well-supported and widely accepted explanation of nature and is not simply a claim posed by an individual. Thus, the use of the term theory in science is very different than how it is used in everyday life.

Students will: • describe cell theory as:

 all organisms are composed of one or more cells

all cells come from pre-existing cells

 cells are the basic unit of life

• explain how cell theory is applied to all living organisms

• explain why cell theory is a theory
