Cell organelles are a content topic that is largely memorization at first, to ensure that students know the names, functions, and visual recognition of each organelle. This is an alternative to giving notes, which can be difficult for students to maintain focus and retain information. In this activity, students can work more quickly through those organelles which they already know, and spend more time or ask questions where they individually need to. They are moving around the room, and stay much more engaged.
I usually put one poster at each table, or hang the posters around the room. Students circulate and fill in their chart.
This set includes:
-12 printable letter-sized sized color posters on each of the major organelles in plant and animal cells. Organelles are identified and labelled on each poster.
-Guided notes chart to complete
-Additional modified chart for students who need extra time or assistance
-Teacher instructions and teaching tips.
After completing this activity, students will have a chart with 12 main organelles, function, drawing, and be able to identify the differences between a plant and animal cell. They will be familiar with the organelles, and will be ready to go into more detail.
