Grades 6-12. Cell differentiation is a process by which the development of a living organism is achieved. Through a series of progressive changes, a generalized cell transforms into a specialized cell. The more specialized the cell becomes, the less likely it is to divide. After the seeds germinate, students prepare slides, then watch living material differentiate before their eyes. They will also observe generalized cellular division in meristematic root cap tissue and isolate specialized cells. In the final activity, students diagram and label the differentiated cells. Contains enough materials for 30 students, may also be used for independent student investigation. Microscope needed (not included).WARNING: Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
