This .zip file contains materials for a middle school science lesson that compares the functions of cell organelles with parts of a factory, as part of a unit on living things. The unit was designed for 6th graders in NYC.
2 SMARTboard .notebook lesson presentations (in one file), including student activities (11 slides)
2 skeleton outline notes sheets that follow the .notebook presentations
2 additional activities
2 homework assignments
Presentations serve as lesson plans that guide the teacher through the entire lesson. Presentation includes links to related YouTube videos to increase student engagement (I can help you use YouTube videos in your class, even if your network blocks such sites, just ask).
'Ask a question' if you need a PowerPoint file instead and I can probably re-upload everything with an adjusted file.
