Day 19 – Concept Mapping Cells

cmap example

Science 8 – I like to introduce concept mapping to my students, starting with the grade 8s.  I use the above graphic to show how there are different levels of complexity in concept maps, and how more links with proper linking words demonstrates a better understanding of a central topic.

The students had already found and defined the different organelles in a cell, but making a concept map is method for them to piece all of the organelles and functions together and see how they are all connected.
