Student Activities

  • Take a boat and explore the cells.
  • Take photos of each organelle.
  • Research and identify the organelles, writing a few lines about it in the portfolio.

Performance Expectations

Students should take pictures of each one of the organelles and try to identify it, writing in the portfolio their characteristics.

After that, the teacher can correct the portfolios and make groups so each group build their own cell. When they finish they can present the cell to their classmate or make a game so the other groups have to guess what cell they build.
