SC.6.L.14.4
Compare and contrast the structure and function of major organelles of plant and animal cells, including cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, cytoplasm, chloroplasts, mitochondria, and vacuoles.
SC.6.N.3.4
Identify the role of models in the context of the sixth grade science benchmarks.

Advanced
SC.912.L.14.2
Relate structure to function for the components of plant and animal cells. Explain the role of cell membranes as a highly selective barrier (passive and active transport).
SC.912.L.14.3
Compare and contrast the general structures of plant and animal cells. Compare and contrast the general structures of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:
• compare and contrast the structure and function of major organelles found in plant and animal cells, including:
o cell wall
o cell membrane
o nucleus
o cytoplasm
o chloroplast
o mitochondria
o vacuoles
• create models of plant and animal cells to illustrate and identify the similarities and differences in the structures found in each cell

Advanced:
1. relate structure to function for the components of plant and animal cells
2. explain the role of cell membranes as a highly selective barrier (passive and active transport)
3. compare and contrast the general structures of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells
