Interactive Google Slides activities to help your students learn about cell organelles!
Custom clip art is used to clearly illustrate each organelle in a diagram for students to label. They will then describe the structure and function of the organelle. There are two versions of this main task – open response and fill-in-the-blanks – for easy differentiation! There are fun follow-up tasks, like creating an animal cell using the correct organelles.
Answer slides are included and you’ll get a self-grading Google Forms Quiz, so there’s no extra work for you!
Organelles covered (13):
- Nucleus, cell membrane, cytoplasm, mitochondrion, chloroplast, vacuole, rough ER, smooth ER, golgi apparatus / body, lysosome, ribosome, centrioles and cell wall.
My Cell Organelles Google Slides Activities and Quiz includes:
- Student Google Slides Activities: 19 slides of engaging activities – see section below
- Answer Slides: animated for going through with the whole class, or you can set them on Google Classroom for students to check and correct their own work
- Google Forms Quiz: a self-grading 20 point quiz to let you easily check student progress, including images to support some questions
- Teacher Guidance: how to assign and use this resource
13 Organelle slides: naming the organelle, stating if the organelle is found in animal cells, plant cells or both, describing its structure, describing its function and linking this to the structure where possible. There are 2 versions of these slides: open response (blank text boxes) and fill in the blanks (completed sentences with gaps). Students will also complete labels on the diagram of the organelle.
Create a cell: students will drag and drop the correct organelles into the animal or plant cell to build each cell, before labelling it.*
Crossword puzzle: check student understanding of the keywords with this 17-clue crossword.
*If you have purchased the Eukaryotic & Prokaryotic Cells Google Slides, then the “create a cell” activity is highly similar to the create a cell activity included there – the Cell Organelles version has additional organelles as these are being taught to a higher level in this lesson. Please be aware of this before making your purchase.
