ANIMAL CELL COLORING AND LABELING ACTIVITY
This activity is hands on and lets students color, describe the function and label the important organelles of an animal cell.
Each organelle is listed in a table and marked with a letter. The student colors the organelle with a given color and describes the function in a table of each organelle. The following day the student can name, label, and give a quick function for the organelle from memory or working as partners in a table group.
Next Generation Science Standards
MS-LS1-2.Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways the parts of cells contribute to the function. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the cell functioning as a whole system and the primary role of identified parts of the cell, specifically the nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondria, cell membrane, and cell wall.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment of organelle structure/function relationships is limited to the cell wall and cell membrane. Assessment of the function of the other organelles is limited to their relationship to the whole cell. Assessment does not include the biochemical function of cells or cell parts.]
RST-6.8-1: Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts.
