What is this product?

This is a link to a free Ck-12 Passage perfect for the beginning of a unit on eukaryotic cells, along with 24 guided questions to help students comprehend, organize their thinking, and attune to key details in the text. The article covers:

  • What cells are
  • The discovery/ history of cells
  • Cell theory
  • Cell size and some types of cells
  • Prokaryotes vs. Eukaryotes
  • Three organelles shared by all cells

The article questions are a mix of 'right there' (text-dependent) and critical thinking questions. This is the perfect way to build background knowledge of cells before diving into the structure and functions of organelles.

NGSSMS-LS1-1
Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells. Emphasis is on developing evidence that living things are made of cells, distinguishing between living and non-living cells, and understanding that living things may be made of one cell or many and varied cells.
NGSSMS-LS1-2
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.
