This is a super fun game for reviewing and reinforcing the Cell Parts! NO PREP! Print and Go! Students use strategy and their knowledge of  Cell Parts to gain the most points and win the game. 

Players take turns going back and forth, each connecting two dots with a line. If a player draws a line that completes a box, that player ‘captures’ the organelle described inside the box. They get the points assigned to that organelle (indicated on the game sheet).

The cell part description inside each box may be a sketch of the part (mitochondria, golgi body, rough ER, ad chloroplast), or a description of what the Cell Part does. Students discuss and confirm, and go back to their notes, to decide what cell part is described so they are sure they (and their partner) get the correct number of points!

Students quickly learn that some organelles hold more points than others, which keeps them focused and interacting with content as they consider each move! 

Cell Parts include:

  • Cell Membrane
  • Nucleus
  • Endoplamic Reticulum
  • Ribosomes
  • Golgi Body
  • Mitochondria
  • Chloroplast
  • Vacuole
  • Lysosome
  • Cell Wall
  • Cytoskeleton

  • Google Slide set with visual instructions to show your students how to play

There are two versions of the score sheet. One sheet is for just one round of play between two students - Player 1 and Player 2. The other score sheet is designed for two rounds of play, where each student has their own sheet, which they carry with them as they play against two different people.

I usually set a timer, rather than letting them finish out the board. This adds a bit of ‘hurry’ to the game, students are more focused on gaining points as quickly as they can. Sometimes I offer candy or some other incentive to the top score or top 5 scores in the room for each round. My students love this game and ask to play it again and again!

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.
