Do your students need practice for standardized tests? Do you need a way for students to review content while also checking for accuracy? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this cell theory self checking worksheet is for you.
I created this line of self checking resources to help teachers, parents, and students by providing simple yet comprehensive practice on a variety of topics. The questions are designed to be rigorous and require students to predict, reflect, connect, and think critically about the content being presented.
The concept of this resource is simple: each answer choice has a letter. At the end of the worksheet, students will complete a riddle by matching the question numbers with the answer letters. If the riddle doesn’t make sense, students know that there must be an error in their work.
Let’s get our students thinking, reading, and reviewing vocabulary with this self checking practice that is compatible with multiple styles of teaching. Your purchase includes both PDF and digital copies that are perfect for pre-reading, homework and review, or even sending to absent students.
Topics covered in this resource include:
- Scientists of the cell theory
- Key points of the cell theory
Who is this resource for?
