Bill Bryson on Cells, and an updated Cell Size (surface area/volume ratio) lab

Hi Friends,

I’ve just uploaded two handouts that you might enjoy.

This is a short excerpt from  Bill Bryson’s Short History of Nearly Everything. Use it to give your students a sense of scale, of cellular dynamism, and, above all, of wonder.

Here’s my newly updated version of the Cell Size Lab, which focuses on Surface Area and Volume relationships. I have also covered this topic in a video that I released last year.

As always, let me know what you think!
