Cell Theory Timeline

(View Complete Item Description)

Throughout time, man has been curious about the world around him. As technology progresses, so too do the views of the scientific world. As we discover new ways to examine the world, we are forced to question our current theories and decide whether or not they are accurate or outdated. One invention, the microscope, was one of the most significant developments in scientific history. It allowed scientists a look at items so small they weren’t even believed to exist. From this invention stems the scientific theory of the cell. This activity allows students to explore the major players in the development of the cell theory.
