In this activity, students will sort cards into prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell characteristics.
Before class, print the cards on card stock, cut out each card, and rubber band them together. I keep the cards and use them over and over. I often use this activity as a warm up or review at the beginning of class. I keep several answer keys, so students that finish quickly become expert checkers. With the help of student checkers, this activity can easily be finished in five minutes for the whole group. I also pull these cards out right before our state standardized test. They are a great review for topics we study at the beginning of the year.
