Are you looking for creative ways to make your plant and animal cell unit engaging and accessible to all students? The Plant and Animal Cell Activities - Cell Organelle Poster Science project tasks students with creating a poster of a plant and/or animal cell organelle. 

In this science project, students will be able to create a poster for a plant and/or animal cell organelle. Students plan their posters using graphic organizers that are differentiated and scaffolded to meet the needs of diverse learners, including students reading below grade level and English learners.



  • Plant and Animal Cell Content Review Worksheets (2 differentiated versions)
  • Science Project Planning Graphic Organizers (2 differentiated versions)
  • Digital Google Slides Version of worksheets & graphic organizers
  • Editable Google Doc Rubric (as a link in the PDF)
  • Teacher Lesson Plan w/Learning Objectives and Standards


  • Plant and Animal Cell Content Review Graphic Organizers - give students space to review cell organelle structure and function, & how organelles work together to maintain homeostasis
  • Science Project Planning Graphic Organizers - Guide students in planning out their projects before they begin (and keep students accountable for including all required elements)
  • Project Presentation Graphic Organizer - With sentence frames to support students needing support in presenting their projects.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Present claims and findings, emphasizing salient points in a focused, coherent manner with pertinent descriptions, facts, details, and examples; use appropriate eye contact, adequate volume, and clear pronunciation.
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6–8 texts and topics.
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.
