Educator Resources for Cell Structures

What’s in a cell? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby show you all the different parts of those tiny things called cells! You’ll see how each cell is like a little factory, carrying out different daily activities to make things run smoothly. Find out what forms the outer layer of a cell, and what that outer layer does. Discover the responsibilities of the nucleus, as well as of other cell parts, like the cytoplasm, lysosomes, vacuoles and ribosomes. Plus, you’ll learn how cells take in raw materials and send out products. Cells sure have some hard workers inside them!
