Cell As A City
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

It is often difficult for students to remember the functions of the cellular organelles because they cannot see, feel, or touch them. Presenting the analogy of the "Cell As A City" helps them realize that each organelle has an essential function. There is also a small section at the bottom of the resource asking the students to recall which cell parts are in a eukaryote, prokaryote, or both.

This worksheet will help your students demonstrate understanding of the concept after a lecture. It could also be used after a traditional organelles lecture, but before you have presented the analogy as a non-graded exercise.
