This is a color memory game focused on cells. Students need to match the picture and word with the definition. This is an excellent PAP or AP Biology activity as well.
Cell organelles, states of osmosis, four eukaryotic kingdoms, two prokaryotic kingdoms and specialized cells are covered. There are 42 pairs for a total of 84 cards. You can make smaller games to best suit your class needs.
It can also be used to make studying flashcards.
The cards are square and saved as a pdf. By adjusting your page count per printed page you can adjust the size of your cards. I suggest laminating them and keeping them year after year. I use one set per lab table. So I printed 7 sets. You can have the students compete within a single table or between groups.
These are the pairs in the memory game:
General Animal Cell
General Plant Cell
General Fungus Cell
General Protist Cell (euglena)
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
Special Animal Cells (4 pairs)
Animal and Plant Osmosis cells (6 pairs)
Special Plant Cells (3 pairs)
Special Fungus cells (2 pairs)
Special Protist cells (3 pairs)
Prokaryotes (2 pairs)
Endocytosis and exocytosis

Texas Biology TEKS
(4) Science concepts. The student knows that cells are the basic structures of all living things with specialized parts that perform specific functions and that viruses are different from cells. The student is expected to:
(A) compare and contrast prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells;
(B) investigate and explain cellular processes, including homeostasis, energy conversions, transport of molecules, and synthesis of new molecules; and
(C) compare the structures of viruses to cells, describe viral reproduction, and describe the role of viruses in causing diseases such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and influenza.
