Class code: 1i2i0vo
SOL 5.5 The student will investigate and understand that organisms are made of one or more cells and have distinguishing characteristics that play a vital role in the organism’s ability to survive and thrive in its environment. Key concepts include
a) basic cell structures and functions;
b) classification of organisms using physical characteristics, body structures, and behavior of the organism; and
c) traits of organisms that allow them to survive in their environment.
Content knowledge: Students will learn the different characteristics of plant and animal cells and the importance of the cell structures.
Technology: Google Classroom and linked websites to complete assignments.
Pedagogy: This assignment would be assigned the night before the in-class lesson took place as a teaser to what we were learning about and a pre-assessment.
TCK: The students will use the links to get an understanding of what we will be covering in the next class. Ideally, in the next class we will briefly go over what they did the night before and then we would make our own plant and animal cells.
TPK: Using the interactive cell tutorial and games will allow the students to fully engage with the material and not just reading out of a book/article.
PCK: The pedagogy supports the content knowledge because after doing the interactive cell tutorial and game, the students should have an understanding of what we will be covering in the next class and they will know the functions and their importance.
