Objective: Understand the differences and similarities between specialised cells.
Understand the adaptations of specialised cells.
Understand how to build a content rich paragraph.
The fact builder is suitable for higher ability KS3 and KS4 students. Used in conjunction with textbook or other reference material it forces students to clarify their thinking before writing, as well as encouraging their interaction with text.
There are 5 fact builder worksheets, all similar to the one displayed, including:
- red blood cells, sperm cells, root hair cells, leaf cells and muscle cells
I have included the Power Point file and the pdf should you wish to tailor them to your students.
Students use their text books to find out about the adaptations, design and function of the cell in question.
Students choose 5 of the most important keywords and write it in the space provided
Finally students answer the question incorporating the keywords they have identified.
