PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Study of the organelles and structure of a cell, along with the membrane, are integral parts of any biology class. Having the students put the names of the major cell organelles (endoplasmic reticulum, cell membrane (plasma membrane), cell wall, cytoplasm (cytosol), Golgi apparatus (complex), mitochondria, chloroplasts, ribosomes, nucleus, vacuole, and others) into their own words and demonstrate understanding of their functions through analogy, metaphor, or similes can be a fun, creative way to talk about cells.

By the end of this activity, the student should be able to demonstrate (a) that knowledge of names of the different parts of a cell, (b) an understanding of the function of cell parts, and (c) see that the parts of the cell are interactive with each other.
Included in this activity is a rubric for analysis of student work and detailed grading assessment.
