All About Cells

Great lessons and interactive activities from "Centre of the Cell" Visitor Centre in London.  There are many games that can be used on an interactive whiteboard, such as "What organs do you need?" and "How many cells do you make in a minute?".  There is also a teacher page that lists classroom resources and links and gives teachers an opportunity to register their classes for online quizzes or cell-based research.
Dr. Saul's Biology in Motion features fantastic interactive activities and animations for students to use to learn human biology concepts. The activities and animations seem to be targeted toward a middle school audience there is a lot of value in this website for high school students too. Biology in Motion offers some good tips for teachers planning to use these activities in the classroom. Most of the tips are things that might seem obvious, but are good reminders none-the-less.

Biology in Motion
The Biology Department at Davidson College has put together a large collection of videos and animations of cell biology processes.
