Build an anchor chart with your students!
This file contains all you need to create an anchor chart detailing the levels of organization of living things, including picture, term and definition.
A black and white version of the chart and a color version of the chart are included. Arrows are included so students can see that organization moves in a set order (cell, tissue, organ, organ system and organism).
While introducing the topic, I put each piece up as we discuss it. This chart uses the human digestive system as an example. If using the black and white version, I split the class into groups, assigning each group a different term. They have to research their term and decide which definition and picture go with it. I keep the pictures and definitions in the front of the room. Once all groups have correctly claimed their pieces, each group colors the pieces they have and we then walk through making the chart. Sometimes I have the groups explain their pieces to the class as they add them to the chart.

A House Called Home
*Arrows have been provided for both the color and black & white versions of this product.
*A completed anchor chart is included in this file for students who were absent, need a hard copy of materials or if you like to keep a binder of anchor charts available for student reference.
*If the large sticky pad paper is not available to you, a poster board or even your whiteboard/chalkboard will work just fine!
A student version
of this anchor chart is available. Building the anchor chart together with the student version gives each student their own copy of the chart they can take home and study from - I build the large one up front and the students build the smaller version at their desks.
