Use this fun speed dating activity for students to make connections between cell organelles and their functions! *Note- students should have a basic understanding of organelle functions prior to this activity.
In this activity, students will be assigned an organelle and will go on 4 speed dates with other students in the classroom. They will need to identify relationships between the organelles. For example, if the mitochondria and chloroplast went on a date, students should recognize that chloroplasts make glucose during photosynthesis, which is broken down into APT during cellular respiration at the mitochondria.
Following the speed dating activity students will complete a dating summary.
Included in your purchase:
