Energy, Matter, and Organization: Organelles

As we begin our new unit about how cells are organized, what they are made of, and how they obtain energy, we will begin with a review of organelles.  Students will complete an organelle chart worksheet where they will research the function and location of the 12 major organelles, and determine whether those organelles are present in animal cells, plant cells, or both types of cells.  Students may use any available credible scientific resource, including textbooks and the website A Tour of the Cell.
