Cell Structures: A Graphic Organizer

worksheet

This graphic organizer (concept map) organizes the cell structures around the three main parts of the eukaryotic cell:  the nucleus, cytoplasm, and cell membrane.   Structures and their functions are included, such as the golgi apparatus and the mitochondria.  Processes, such as diffusion are considered in the area near the cell membrane.  A word bank is included, but you could remove it to make the exercise more challenging.

Graphic organizers are very helpful in studying biology and anatomy, however, it provides greater benefit when students make their own. I start off the year with pre-made graphic organizers like this one or the one on the body systems,  then transition students into being able to create their own.    For example, once the anatomy students got the chapter on tissues, they have already seen a few of these graphics and are now tasked to make their own on the tissues types of the body.

Key is provided through TpT, but it is a simple worksheet, most students (and teachers) should have no trouble completing it.
