Students will use this book template to explore available resources and discover everything they need to know about cells. More fun than listening to lectures, students discover cell theory/history, distinguish between prokaryote/eukaryote and plant/animal, and learn the structure and function of organelles. As an added bonus, there is a chapter for students to use critical thinking skills to explain what will happen to the cell if an organelle is removed or stops functioning!
Classroom tested, this autobiography is a hit with students and boosts tests scores by allowing them to discover the information themselves. The book is written as an autobiography, from the viewpoint of an animal cell. Students will fill in blanks, write short answers, and draw pictures over several class periods (usually 3-4) to complete an entire unit on cells in this one booklet. The pages are ordered so that all you have to do is print them front/back in order, fold them in half, and staple them together. Instructions are included.
NO TEACHER SETUP required other than copies and giving instructions (right off the included instruction page).
