Product Description

This lesson is designed to be an introduction into a middle school cells unit, giving students a chance to discover ideas about cells on their own before jumping into higher level concepts. Students begin the lesson with a card sort activity, addressing the question: What is required for something to be “living?” Next, students engage in a maker’s space activity where they model different images of cells and address the question: Do all cells look the same? Finally, students come together as a class to discuss their findings and create a set of teacher-led notes about the basics of cells.

This lesson includes:

Printable task cards for a living/non-living card sort activity (color)

Student worksheet for the card sort activity

Student Instructions and teacher tips for running a successful maker's space lab

Note-taking guides (blank, partial, and complete)
