Do your students struggle to understand cell organelle relationships? My students memorize what each organelle does but struggle to understand how the cell functions as a system. In this activity students will identify relationships between cell organelles.

There are 2 versions of the activity included:

Option 1: Students will be given 2 organelles paired up and asked to identify the relationships. 11 sets are included, along with a blank for you to add more of your own. These could be cut and glued into interactive notebooks. (See thumbnail 1)

Option 2: Students will identify which organelles work together on their own. They will cut out puzzle pieces, tape or glue them together on butcher paper, and write out the relationships. The more puzzle pieces they can link together the better! (See thumbnail 2 and 3)

You will receive both print and digital (Google slide) versions of this activity in your download!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways the parts of cells contribute to the function. Emphasis is on the cell functioning as a whole system and the primary role of identified parts of the cell, specifically the nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondria, cell membrane, and cell wall. Assessment of organelle structure/function relationships is limited to the cell wall and cell membrane. Assessment of the function of the other organelles is limited to their relationship to the whole cell. Assessment does not include the biochemical function of cells or cell parts.
Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms. Emphasis is on functions at the organism system level such as nutrient uptake, water delivery, and organism movement in response to neural stimuli. An example of an interacting system could be an artery depending on the proper function of elastic tissue and smooth muscle to regulate and deliver the proper amount of blood within the circulatory system. Assessment does not include interactions and functions at the molecular or chemical reaction level.
