Please open the preview to see how the pages are structured - there are "crop marks" and instructions for how best to cut the cards out. The cards are not border-lined (because they look better that way when you use the crop marks!). :)

There are a lot of card games you could play with these cards and I include four ideas! I include one page printouts with instructions for each of the following games, just in case your students have never played some of the more common kid card games:

Crazy Chloroplasts! (Like Crazy Eights)

Ol' Mitochondrion! (Like Old Maid)

Go Organelle (Like Go-Fish!)

Organelle Memory Matching

There are 60 cards total: 15 Organelles/Cell Structures with 4 cards of each. (There are different color bands to represent the 4 different “suits”).

These are the Organelles/Cell Structures included in these cards:







Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum


Central Vacuole

Cell Wall

Cell Membrane


Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum



Printing Instructions/Recommendations:

To prepare these for your class, I suggest printing on thick card stock if you can, or print them on paper and glue that paper page to card stock before cutting. You can also then laminate them if you want them to last longer in student hands.

I include a large science-background document you could use to also print the backs of cards, but in my experience, printing the back of the cards drains printer ink and printing on two sides of paper with a ton of ink can cause seeping through to the other side of the card. I recommend printing the card faces on one side of card stock and then gluing a solid color paper on the back to make the card backs (or just leave the backs blank!)

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways the parts of cells contribute to the function. Emphasis is on the cell functioning as a whole system and the primary role of identified parts of the cell, specifically the nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondria, cell membrane, and cell wall. Assessment of organelle structure/function relationships is limited to the cell wall and cell membrane. Assessment of the function of the other organelles is limited to their relationship to the whole cell. Assessment does not include the biochemical function of cells or cell parts.
