“Cells” is a great way to introduce your students to the many parts of a cell.
The power point includes pictures of each organelle and lists important information about each part.
Slides include information on the following cell parts:
The final slides of the power point are review facts about the nucleus and differences between plant and animal cells.
The slides have a fill in the blank format to add to the student engagement as they attempt to fill in the blanks with new and already known vocabulary words.
My fifth graders love this format for presenting information. I used this type of activity to build background knowledge and to introduce vocabulary. I have also used the power point presentations as a review before testing.
This power point can be used alone, or it can be used with the Cell:Teacher and Student worksheets and test. The worksheets are sized to fit into composition books if they are used as an interactive notebook. Students can cut and paste or tape the pages into their book, and fill in the blanks as they review the power point as a class.
The use of the power point and worksheets was very engaging for my students.
