This resource is a powerpoint presentation explaining the parts of the cell, using the metaphor of a school. I've removed the photos of some individuals at the original school, so you'll have to fill them in with photos from your own. This resource is part of the Developing Biology course which contains units on Microscopes; Biochemistry; Cells; Cellular Transport; DNA; Photosynthesis and Respiration; Mitosis and Meiosis; Genetics; and Evolution.
