Invite biologists to watch an animal cell feasting on a bacterium as just one exciting part of a multi-faceted and extendable activity. Topics addressed include cell organelles and the differences between eukaryotes and prokaryotes. Scholars interact with text and images, demonstrate comprehension skills by answering worksheet questions, and view content-related videos.
