Included is a two page reading passage covering the different levels of organization including cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and organisms. The passage gives specific examples for both plants and humans for the different levels, such as leaves and bones to represent organs. A key to help grade is also included.
To use, print out the handouts and you can either have students read the passage independently, in pairs, or in larger groups. Questions are given off to the side so that students are sticking to the main ideas of the paragraphs.
At the end of the passage, there are more questions to help the students process their thinking. Also provided is the opportunity for students to draw out their understanding of the levels of organization through a flow chart.
This is primarily used to supplement in class notes, but could be used for a sub plan or additional work for students not in class.
