I spent a lot of time searching on for a decent cell model project rubric, and couldn’t find one that I liked. So here’s what I made for myself.
This is only a rubric, there is no project description included.
I have the students fill out the organelle function sheet along and turn it in with their project.
Purchase includes editable (Keynote) and PDF versions.
Visit my store for more projects and hundreds of other teaching science resources.
NGSS Standards covered by the cell model project:
MS-LS1-2 Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways the parts of cells contribute to the function. Emphasis is on the cell functioning as a whole system and the primary role of identified parts of the cell, specifically the nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondria, cell membrane, and cell wall. Assessment of organelle structure/function relationships is limited to the cell wall and cell membrane. Assessment of the function of the other organelles is limited to their relationship to the whole cell. Assessment does not include the biochemical function of cells or cell parts.
