PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If the levels of organization is just a list of words (cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, organisms) that your students memorize in a specific order, but you want an activity that will help them visualize the levels of organization and understand it, this activity is what you're looking for. In this activity, students model the levels of organization of living things, using a simple set of paper shapes.

Students use paper pieces (shown in the thumbnail picture and in the preview) to model how different cells combine to make tissues, organs, organ systems, and organisms. The activity is intended for small groups of 3-5 students, and will take about 45-60 min.

The product includes a template for printing the shapes, a scripted lesson, (see preview for a sample), questions that can be used as a worksheet or formative assessment (also shown in the preview) using the completed model, and an answer key for the questions.

Preparation involves printing, cutting and laminating of the paper shapes for one class of students. The pieces will be reused for all other classes and, if laminated, will last for years. No special materials or equipment needed.
