Learning the levels of organization with a fun cut-and-paste activity that works well on its own or in an interactive notebook!
This file contains all you need to create a chart detailing the levels of organization of living things, including picture, term and definition.
A black and white version of the completed chart, a color version of the completed chart and the student version of the chart are all included.
In the student version, the pictures, terms and definitions are all mixed up. They need to be colored, cut and sorted before being glued onto the page with the empty boxes. I have also included arrows so students can see that organization moves in a set order (cell, tissue, organ, organ system and organism).
After introducing the topic, I have my students color the boxes that will be cut and pasted. For example, I have them color the picture, term and definition of cell all green. I then have the students cut out the boxes and glue them in the correct order on the page of empty boxes, adding the arrows at the very end.
*A blog post outlining how I use this activity in my classroom can be found here
*An anchor chart version
is also available.
