Cells and Cell Structures Keyword Card Sorts (A-Level Biology)

(0)
Seven sets of keywords and matching definitions, each with a good quality image to help students to recognise structures and terms. These can be printed onto card or laminated for long term use. Make an excellent settler activity, plenary or a quick revision activity at the end of the year. All cut edges are straight so can be done quickly on a guillotine. Sets are 1. Microscopy keywords 2. Microscope types 3. Eukaryotic cells: Animal Cells 4. Eukaryotic cells: Plant Cells 5. Prokaryotic cells 6. The Cytoskeleton 7. Organelles working together (the organelles involved in protein synthesis - can also be a good sequencing activity)
