Finally--task cards that increase challenge as you are ready for it!
--Directions on cards
--22 task cards ready-to-print
--Answers ready-to-print on the back of each task card for unique guided practice until mastery! It's like a private tutor for each student!
--Student Improvement sheet; evidence of learning and a beautiful formative assessment for teachers and students!
--Basics of cells: definition of cell, 3 parts of cell theory, prokaryotic vs eukaryotic, definition of DNA, definition of protein, definition of analogy
--Centered around analogy of "If a cell were like a dairy farm, the protein would be like the milk."
--Functions of other cell parts, including: ribosome, DNA, nucleus, nucleolus, smooth ER, rough ER, Golgi, vesicles, mitochondria, chloroplasts, cell wall, cell membrane, lysosome, vacuole
--Persistence until mastery, as students circle back through concepts they haven't mastered if errors are made
--Finish the analogy phrase, "If a cell were like a dairy farm, the _______ would be like the _________ because ..."
If the cell were like a dairy farm...
This analogy emphasizes the centrality of the protein in the cell as the set of molecules that control much of the cell. All other aspects of the analogy are built around this. All parts of the analogy are logical--little knowledge of a farm is needed!
These task cards create a pathway for success in concepts laden with vocabulary! It's like being able to personally tutor each of your students! Who wouldn't want that?!
