Can students find immersive virtual locations that remind them of cell organelles due to their function and role?
Can students add items to these locations to further support their linking?
Can students articulate why they linked certain locations to certain organelles and the differences and similarities of both?
Students research cell organelles and take notes.
In teams students enter a village and begin linking structures and locations to organelles based on function and roles in the cell.
Students add further items to help support their linking
Students articulate why the made the choices they made and what similarities and differences exist between organelle and location in town.
Students will research and record cell organelle functions and roles in eukaryotic cells.
Students will demonstrate their cellular organelle knowledge by finding locations in a town that represent a given organelle.
Students will make additions to help support their ideas
Students will articulate why such linking occured between organelles and specific town locations.
