SC.6.L.14.1 Describe and identify patterns in the hierarchical organization of organisms from atoms to molecules and cells to tissues to organs to organ systems to organisms.

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.

 

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will: • describe and identify patterns in the hierarchical organization of organisms from atoms to molecules and cells to tissues to organs to organ systems to organisms, for example:

atom → molecule → cell → tissue → organ → organ system → organism

Students will:

• compare and contrast the structure and function of major organelles found in plant and animal cells, including:

 cell wall

cell membrane

 nucleus

 cytoplasm

 chloroplast

 mitochondria

vacuoles

• use models of plant and animal cells to analyze the similarities and differences in the structures found in each cell

Classroom Activities

Students will compare the patterns in hierarchical organisms to train tracks. Students will sort and categorize these patterns.

Students will compare the cell membrane to saran wrap and learn about its functions in the cell

Students will participate in drawing an analogy between the nucleus and a city hall.

Students will differentiate between plant and animals cells through drawings and model of a plant cell.
