This simple yet effective worksheet allows students to organize and explain information they learn about prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
-Concept map of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, characteristics, and examples.
-Graphic organizer of similarities and differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
-Sentence frames for a compare-and-contrast paragraph.
The guided practice of writing a compare-and-contrast paragraph reinforces the acquisition of academic language, and empowers the student to write well-structured paragraphs in the future. Students often know what they mean to say, but do not have the writing skills to express what they know. This paragraph frame will help students write accurately and concisely, while still giving them the liberty to fill in their own knowledge.
