Performance Task Title

How Do Cell Structures Contribute to the Function of the Cell?

Grade Level
Seventh Grade

Sahira Wadley

Performance Task Annotation

Students will create a PowToon presentation. Within the presentation, students will
explain how the nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, cell wall, chloroplasts,
lysosome, and mitochondria contribute to the function of the cell.


Approximate Duration of Performance Task

Students will be given three days to complete the performance task.

Focus Standards
S7L2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe how cell
structures, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems interact to maintain the basic
needs of organisms.
a. Develop a model and construct an explanation of how cell structures
(specifically the nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, cell wall, chloroplasts,
lysosome, and mitochondria) contribute to the function of the cell as a system in
obtaining nutrients in order to grow, reproduce, make needed materials, and
process waste.

National Standards
3. Knowledge Constructor
Students critically curate a variety of resources using digital tools to construct
knowledge, produce creative artifacts, and make meaningful learning experiences
for themselves and others.

6. Creative Communicator
Students communicate clearly and express themselves creatively for a variety of
purposes using the platforms, tools, styles, formats and digital media appropriate to
their goals.

Description and Teacher/Trainer Directions

1. Students will write down the standards.
2. Students will be shown a video clip on the interactive whiteboard of cell
structures and how they function in cells.
3. The teacher will further explain how cell structures contribute to the function of
a cell.
4. Students will independently take an online informal quiz accessing their
knowledge of cell structures using their chrome-books.
5. Students will complete some independent practice, reading and comprehension
questions, about cell structures and their functions in cells in their workbook on
pages 58-59.
6. Students will play a review game that will be posted on their google classroom
7. The teacher will explain the performance task directions and how to use the
basic features of PowToon, using the interactive whiteboard.
8. Students will begin working independently on their PowToon animation
presentation using their chrome-books, which they will submit through Gmail
to their teacher when finished.

Rubric Title
Cell Structures and Their Functions

Rubric Description
The rubric will provide students with a guide of the expected requirements. Also, it
will provide the teacher with a measurement tool to guide the assessment process.

Example of Student Work with Teacher Commentary

Student A did a good job of explaining the cell structures’ functions. The
presentation was colorful and very informative. However, the inclusion of images
would have made the PowToon presentation more attractive, which the student
failed to include. The presentation was organized with very few grammar mistakes
present. Overall, Student A did a good job!

Differentiated Instruction (Readiness, Learning Profile, and Student

Differentiated instruction will be provided based on the students’ assessment
results. Students who pass the assessment will be given enrichment work to
complete, whereas the students, who don’t pass the assessment will be given a
remediation assignment. The enrichment work will consist of students conducting
further research on the importance of cell structures and their functions as well as
analyzing their results. The remediation work will consist of students re-examining
their assignments in their workbooks and completing the performance task again.

The lesson will take place at Montgomery County Middle School in Ailey,
Georgia. The lesson will be taught in a spacious, block wall classroom with
approximately seventeen students. There is an interactive whiteboard present in the
classroom as well as a two dry erase boards.

The learners consist of students between the age range of twelve to thirteen years
