Cells and Organelles
Middle schoolers define the parts of a cell and make a model. In this cells and organelles lesson, students construct organelles from supplied materials. Middle schoolers describe the parts of their constructions.
Students explore the functions of major eukaryotic organelles. They compare and contrast prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Given diagrams and drawings, students take turns drawing structures, discussing their function, and labeling each function. They play the "What Am I" game to describe the function of organelles.
Students simulate a working cell by making a model. In this cell organelles activity, students research the cell and create a model of a cell cross section. Students make observations as they navigate an online site showing the inside of the cell. Students create a poster showing the parts of the cell.
Students analyze the structure and function of various cell organelles.
Cell 3: Organelles B
Students, after researching cells, construct a model cell. They explain the structure and function of eukaryotic organelles in a presentation. In addition, they create their own analogies to describe the structure and function of eukaryotic organelles.
Cells and Their Organelles
Introduce your learners to cells and organelles with this resource. This series of handouts and images asks young scientists to read short informational paragraphs, answer identification questions, and color and label diagrams of an animal cell and a plant cell. This is a complete resource that could be given as a packet. It also includes a graphic organizer in which class members can demonstrate their knowledge of the different organelles. Color cell diagrams are included on the last page.
The Gift of Life - Day 2: "Cell & Organelle Time to Tell" and "World in Color" (Chapters 2-4)
Students complete a cell biology lesson and a color lesson based on The Giver. In this biology and reading comprehension lesson set, students examine cells using microscopes. They look at the organelles and listen to How Much is a Million by David M. Schwartz to visualize the large number of cells. They watch a YouTube video of The Wizard of Oz before completing a color association activity. They read and respond to two chapters in The Giver.
Cells - Critical Thinking in Science
What are the structures in cells and what are their functions? Budding biologists discover the answers to these questions through an in-depth examination of cells and organelles. Using the 5E learning cycle, learners explore the types of organelles using an electron microscope, research, draw, and describe the function of each one, explain how different cell types make up different kingdoms, then design and execute an experiment to determine the effect of pH on algae.
Cell 4 Organelles Review
Students list and define all of the major organelles in a eukaryotic cell. They identify the correct placement of all the major organelles in a eukaryotic cell. They examine cell membrane and its function.
Cell Organelles and Their Functions
Students will be using Inspiration, which is a graphic organizer computer program, to create their own model community where they will label the community parts with the corresponding organelle. They will have prior knowledge of cell organelles and their functions from the previously given notes. Students will use the graphic organizer that they have created to produce a short essay correlating organelles to the roles in a community.
2D Concept Visualization: Cell Organelles Presentation
Pupils create simple 2D concept driven visualizations of cells and cell organelles and organize them into an effective presentation.
New! Animal Cell Construction
Using a piece of pink paper as the cytoplasm of an animal cell, beginning biologists color and cut out organelles on the handout to glue onto their cell models. Afterward, they create a list of the structures and describe the function of each.
Cell Labeling Worksheet
Here is a basic fill-in-the-blank resource with a short introduction to cell structure and organelle vocabulary. Information and worksheet are not separated, so it may be helpful to copy and paste the questions into your own document.
Students define the function of the different parts of a cell. In this biology lesson, students discuss cell structures and how its organelles perform basic functions. They differentiate between human and animal cells.
Students observe, compare and describe cell organelles in terms of their function, structure and operation. They enter and edit information in a database, build and sort a student-designed database and find records in a database.
Young scholars explore the cell and cell processes. They create "cytoplasm", make a model of the cell and its organelles, and simulate the osmosis and the diffusion of materials into and out of the cell.
Cellular Structure and Function
Students examine animal and plant cells using a microscope and participate in a class discussion about the functions of the organelles. In this biology lesson, students use microscopes and videos to better understand the functions of specialized cells.
Cell Organelles, Part I
Students compare and contrast different cell types. In this biology lesson, students determine the different functions of cell organelles. They create cell diagrams during the exploration lesson.
Cell Organelles, Part II
Students describe the different cell types. In this biology lesson plan, students create cell models using materials available. They label different cell organelles and identify their function.
CELL MODEL PROJECT
Young scholars distinguish the differences betwee the organelle shapes, size, and distinguishing factors. They place the correct organelles in the appropriate cell, plants or animals.
