This is an introduction into eukaryotes. The students will be asked to draw a eukaryote and a chloroplast and mitochondria. They will also be prompted to write about the various organelles. There are also review questions at the end of the packet. This is formatted as a packet, but can also be glued into a composition notebook. Students can use their textbook or answer the questions using the internet.
These worksheets can be coupled with Eukaryote Cells with Prokaryote Review Power Point
I also have MEGA Cell Bundle: Prokaryote and Eukaryote, Simple and Complex Cells
Print in gray-scale to ensure detailed black and white images if not printing in color.
THIS IS A GREAT RESOURCE FOR ANY STATE!

(4) Science concepts. The student knows that cells are the basic structures of all living things with specialized parts that perform specific functions and that viruses are different from cells. The student is expected to:
(A) compare and contrast prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells;

MS-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. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on developing evidence that living things are made of cells, distinguishing between living and non-living things, and understanding that living things may be made of one cell or many and varied cells.]
MS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function. [Clarification Statement: 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 Boundary: 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.]
