Closely examine each slide under the microscope and identify the
organelles within the cell.
Step 2 Locate
the two organelles that are only found in plant cells (chloroplasts, cell wall).
Step 3 If
chloroplasts and a cell wall exist, place that slide in the plant cell category.
Step 4 If
a cell wall and chloroplasts are not present, place that slide in the animal cell group.
Step 5 Follow this
procedure for each slide.
solution is better?
1 View the slides individually under the microscope.
Locate the nucleus.
Step 2 Next, identify
the vacuole because all cells, plant and animal, contain this organelle.
Step 3 Locate the
Step 4 Locate the
Step 5 Then, locate
the cell wall.
Step 6 If a cell wall is
present, look for chloroplasts.
Step 7 If a cell wall and
chloroplasts are present, the slide belongs in the plant cell category.
Step 8 If you
are unable to locate a cell wall and chloroplasts, place this slide in the animal cell
Step 9 Follow this
procedure until every slide is returned to its original category.
