This craftivity was created to put a little fun into your lessons on plant and animal cells.
Each school district varies when it comes to which specific organelles of plant and animal cells are explored, therefore, I included a variety of organelle “apps” for you to choose from. I have created two “apps” pages – one basic and one advanced. Of course you are welcome to “mix and match” between the two pages.
Depending on your preference, you can print on color paper or print on regular paper and have the students color it. Then have them cut out the “apps” and glue down just the top portion where it folds on the dotted line. Under the flap have students write the function of the cell organelle. Students can then color the i-cell and/or cut it out.
These organelles and terms are included as apps (both plant and animal cell organelles): *animal *systems *plant *organs *cells *tissues *organelles *cell membrane *nucleus *cytoplasm *lysosomes *cell wall *mitochondria *centrioles *golgi body *chloroplast *endoplasmic reticulum
Additionally, I have provided practice sheets for students to identify the organelles of each type of cell (label and color key) and an organizer for them to compare and contrast the two cells.
It is my hope that your students will not only benefit from this activity that reinforces these terms, but also enjoys it.

I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelors in Science degree and an elementary education certificate. I am certified to teach K-8 Self-Contained and Middle School Science. I have taught ever since graduation,with most of my experience in 5th grade. I'm currently completing my Masters program in Differentiation. I utilize a lot of differentiated strategies along with the workshop model in reading, writing, math, and sometimes science. I love more hands-on activities that are related to real life for students to explore. I'm not a huge fan of worksheets, but do use them occasionally.
