PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM and NGSS aligned! MS.LS1.A

This is a 2-part lesson to help students become familiar with the functions of organelles in plant and animal cells in a fun way that stretches the brain. This is a fresh take on the old diagram/model lesson and a great way to engage students in really thinking about organelle functions.

It will take 2-4 days to complete both parts. The first part is a cooperative learning activity. The second part is an art assignment. I used these lessons after general introduction/review to cells and their organelles.

These lessons really require students to be engaged in thinking about organelle functions. You can extend it into ELA by having the students write out their metaphors; make a metaphor/simile/analogy chart, etc.

The cooperative learning activity includes pre-made sheets for 12 organelles with very basic definitions, plus one blank copy for any you'd like to add. Organelles included are: nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, cell wall, mitochondria, ribosomes, lysosomes, vacuoles, Golgi body, endoplasmic reticulum, cytoskeleton, and chloroplasts.
