Product Description
This NGSS Aligned lesson(MS-LS1-2) has students creating analogies that demonstrate organelle function. It takes my students 5 days to create these posters, and I have a 2-1 ratio of students to chromebooks. I also use google classroom to save on printed paper, but I still print out one contract and rubric for each group. I have students use the definitions for organelles which I provided in the organelle analogy notes.

Also I do not assess students on all of these organelles individually. Our assessment focuses on the organelles identified in the NGSS standard MS-LS1-2, but this project exposes them to many other organelles.
