War in Biology

This week in Ms. Shook’s Biology course students engaged in war on Twitter… Organelle War!

Each student group was given an organelle, a part of a cell, to promote on Twitter. The groups then created a Twitter account with that organelle’s name.  They had to create 5 post that promoted their organelle.  In addition to promotion, they also had to create 5 post that smear the other organelles.  This was an opportunity for the students to learn about other types of organelles.

Instead of just learning a list of organelles and what they do, Ms. Shook leveraged Social Media to help engage students in the content.  They really enjoyed being creative why learning about cells.
