  Material like this could have a conerstone position in teaching biology at these grade levels.  The only issue with it would be the link to a wikipedia article as it isn't always the most credible source and employers might not approve the use of this in the classroom.

This website has a good amount of simple, relevent pictures that should be easy to understand. It is also nice that there is a recommended grade level for material.

This is a good cite that can be used to teach at a wide age range about cells.
