Purpose of Strategy/Approach

 

Provide multiple means for students to represent comprehension, such as by activating prior knowledge and bridging it with new knowledge using relevant analogies.

 

Rationale of Lesson

 

Understanding of this topic is fundamental to understanding the makeup of living organisms and ultimately how the human body works. Cell structures and functions enable cells to function independently or as part of multicellular organisms. The interdependence of cell structures within a cell mirror the interdependence of organs to the well-being of the human body.
