This rap was created for a 6th grade science classroom to teach about the different parts of a cell. With its catchy rhythm and rhymes, students of all learning styles and abilities will be able to learn about cells and their functions while having fun!

Chorus: Cells, cells they're made of organelles Try to pull a fast one, the cytoplasm gels The nucleus takes over controllin' everything The party don't stop 'till the membrane blocks the scene Inside the vacuole we can float around for hours Running round with chloroplasts, lovin' sunlight showers Cells, cells, they're made of organelles First things first, there's two different types- animal and plant cells that make up all life. The little things that make up microscopic cells, The main structures- yeah, we call them organelles. Now let's break it down and get some information- How do cells work? It's a crazy combination! -Chorus- The cell membrane is the border patrol, Who can cross over? The membrane lets 'em know The gooey stuff inside, is called the cytoplasm It holds the organelles- don't worry, plasm-has 'em! In the middle of the cell you'll find the big brain, The nucleus surrounded by nuclear membrane Don't forget the vacuole filled up with water It's a basic need for life when this rap keeps getting hotter! -Chorus- The mitchondria's something every cell needs, Breaking down the food and releasin' energy. There's a place inside the cell where chemicals are stored, the squiggly golgi bodies, releasin' even more. Yo hangin' in the cell is endoplasmic reticulum, synthesizin' enzymes for respiration, and um... If you still think that this rap is whack, remember ribosomes making proteins gettin' jacked! -Chorus- Lookin at the plant cell, weird and green two more parts is all it takes you see? Cell wall knows what's up when it comes to keepin' structure Strong with cellulose, this cell can't get much tougher. C-H- L-O- R-O -- Plast, These little green machines are havin' a blast Photosythenisizing- filled with chlorophyll -they hit the cell club, runnin' up a high bill- -Chorus- Creative Commons License Cells Cells - Parts of the Cell Rap by Emily J Crapnell is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
