Leaf Tissue Jigsaw Post-Test
SC.912.L.14.7-Relate the structure of each of the major plant organs and tissues to physiological
SC.912.L.14.3-Compare and contrast the general structures of plant and animal cells. Compare and
contrast the general structures of prokaryotic and eukaryotic.
SC.912.L.18.12-Discuss the special properties of water that contribute to Earth’s suitability as an
environment for life: cohesive behavior, ability to moderate temperature, expansion upon freezing, and
versatility as a solvent.
LACC.910.RST.2.4-Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and
phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 9-10 texts and
LACC.910.SL.1.1-Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions with diverse
partners on grades 9-10 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own
clearly and persuasively.
