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
• compare and contrast the structure and function of major organelles found in plant and animal cells, including:
• use models of plant and animal cells to analyze the similarities and differences in the structures found in each cell
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.
