Activities for Formative Assessment

Class IX
Biology
Chapter: The Fundamental Unit of Life

Learning Objectives:
 Identify a prokaryotic cell and a eukaryotic cell
 differentiate between a prokaryotic cell and a eukaryotic cell
 explain the functions of various organelles present in a cell
 differentiate between plant cell and animal cell

TASK 1 : PREPARING AND GUESSING RIDDLES


For Learning outcome/outcomes: explain the functions of various organelles
present in a cell
Task 1: Step one: The student shall prepare riddles about the functions of
various cell organelles and parts of cell.(The teacher shall allocate cell
organelles to various groups/individual students)
For example:
To manufacture food in plants is my job,
I make it myself and do not rob,
I am a member of the plastids group,
and contain stroma and grana
and I don’t care for produce per annum

I am the barrier between inside and outside of the cell,


I am flexible like gel
I allow useful substances to move in and out
It there is a harmful one,
I order it to get out.

I am composed of cisternae and vesicles


Which are membrane- bound stacks
Lipids and proteins
I am used to pack

I am the control centre in cells


Which are eukaryotic
I contain the material
Which has info that is genetic
Step two
The teacher shall ask riddles to another group/individual student in the
classroom. Flash Cards of these pictures can be used as hints:

Remedial Measures:
 For preparing riddles, if the student is unable to prepare riddles of good
quality, the teacher shall assign a group mentor who shall help these
students.
 If the students are not able to guess the correct answers, the concepts
shall be explained again.
Task 2 : MODEL MAKING
For Learning outcome/outcomes:
 differentiate between a prokaryotic cell and a eukaryotic cell
 differentiate between plant cell and animal cell
Task : Teacher should create groups of students and allocate one of the
following topics to each group:
 Prokaryotic cell
 Eukaryotic cell
 Animal cell
 Plant cell
Each group would be asked to prepare an outline model of the topic allocated.

Animal Cell Plant Cell

Time span: 2 periods of 40 minutes each

Resources 1. clay dough of various colours


required 2. board for the base
3. paper flags for labeling

C 1 : presentation of model
C 2 : placement of organelles
C 3 : accuracy of model
C 4 : group involvement

Remedial Measures:
 For model making, if the students are unable to make the appropriate
model, then the teacher should provide them with diagram and
guidance.
 If still the students are not able to complete the task, reshuffling of
groups should be done, taking care of the students’ intellect.
