Are your students learning cell structure and organelles? Games are such an engaging way for them to learn or review the extensive vocabulary that biology studies require. In this game they'll become familiar with cell structures including: nucleus, mitochondria, vacuole, ribosomes, Golgi complex, lysosomes, and endoplasmic reticulum, and cytoplasm.

 

Use this to learn and reinforce answers to questions such as:

❑  What are the main types of organelles in cells?

❑  What features do all cells have in common?

❑  Which organelles must a cell have to be viable? 

 

Once students try this activity, they can capture their observations using the included Lab Notes or probing questions included in the instructions. 

 

Concepts Addressed

♦  Cells have a membranes, cytoplasm, mitochondria, and a nucleus.

♦  Typical cell organelles include: nucleus, mitochondria, vacuole, ribosomes, Golgi complex, lysosomes, and endoplasmic reticulum

 

Answer Keys and Teacher Notes address most questions and issues that might arise in this study—you shouldn’t have to do any outside research unless you want to.
