    Instructors could assign this worksheet to be completed as a pre-class assignment to assess understanding before any instruction begins and again as a post-class assignment to see how much they actually learn during instruction.  It also could solely be assigned as a post-class assignment to challenge the students to use the new terminology right after the introductory material is covered.   

     

    Students will typically spend  ~5-15 minutes on this assignment.
     

    It has been designed to be an ungraded practice assignment.  Students do not necessarily have to have been introduced to the material for this assignment to be worthwhile.

    After completing this assignment, students will be able to:

    • List the levels of organization of the human organism from smallest to largest.
