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 define the parts of a cell and make a model.  For this cells and organelles lesson, students construct organelles from supplied materials.  Students describe the parts of their constructions.
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 simulate a working cell by making a model. In this cell organelles lesson, 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.
Learners analyze the structure and function of various cell organelles.
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.
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.
Young scholars 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.
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.
Students create simple 2D concept driven visualizations of cells and cell organelles and organize them into an effective presentation.
Students compare and contrast different cell types. In this biology activity, students determine the different functions of cell organelles. They create cell diagrams during the exploration activity.
Learners describe the different cell types. In this biology lesson, students create cell models using materials available. They label different cell organelles and identify their function.
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. 
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.
High schoolers 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.
Students 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.
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.
High schoolers distinguish the differences betwee the organelle shapes, size, and distinguishing factors. They place the correct organelles in the appropriate cell, plants or animals.
Each of these slides deals with an individual organelle and displays a diagram along with labels of the structures. The most useful components of this slideshow are the summaries of functions and descriptions of how the organelles are the most efficient for their jobs. This is the first of a three-part series of PowerPoint presentations.
