Free Cell Organelles Matching Game - Perfect for Homeschool & Classes!

Are you teaching (or learning!) about the cell? I made this matching game to help review cell organelles and their functions for my daughter, and am sharing it with you now!

It comes with two pages, 9 organelles, and 9 function cards! 

I designed it to review middle school cell organelle names and functions, but the fun part about homeschooling is that all my kids like memory games--so my 5th and 2nd graders are getting "sneak" previews into the contents of their cells too! (Of course, since this is a "review" game, they actually got the sneak preview when we did our first cell projects...but I'm okay with that too!) Actually, while I'm on the topic of younger kids learning things from their older siblings, my just-turned 5-year old absolutely LOVES matching games...I have to read every card to her, but I would not be surprised if she decides to learn the organelles just so she can play the game. She thinks the pictures are "so cute!" 💖

We like memory-style games, and I have a short attention span, so nine sets of organelles and their functions is pretty much perfect for us! I hope you enjoy it too!

Here are the organelles I included:

* nucleus
* cell membrane
* endoplasmic reticulum
* mitochondrion
* golgi apparatus
* ribosome
* centrosome
* chloroplast
* vacuole

The chloroplast is only in plant cells, and centrosomes are only in animal cells. Animal cells have vacuoles, but they are small, while plant cells have a large central vacuole.
