Students will create their own animal cell. This activity is AWESOME to include in a science interactive notebook. MOST OF THIS IS EDITABLE, except the pictures, in case you want to add or delete an organelle, or modify a cell's function (change the wording to make it simpler or more complex, or add more detail) depending on your grade level.
USE IT FOR AN INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK – Have your students color, cut out, and glue the animal cell into the interactive notebook or on a blank piece of paper. Then have your students hand write in the names of the organelles. You can either give the students the page that has the cell organelles with the organelles labels (the names of the organelles) or the page that doesn’t have the organelles’ names. You decide! It’s great for differentiating instruction!
OR USE IT FOR A GROUP PROJECT: Instead of just having your students identify the names of the organelles, take it a step further, and have your students identify the function of the organelles as well (see preview). INSTEAD your students will place the animal cell on a LARGE construction paper (12 in. X 18 in.) and then paste the cells’ organelles, the names of the organelles, and their function on it.
