I need help crafting a short story about the differences between prokaryotes and eukaryotes: At least 2 differences. I need the differences in a story form (about a paragraph or two) to read to children that are 12 years old so they can clearly understand. Maybe with characters or something?
What a neat problem! Below I've outlined for you the differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and given you some ideas for creating a story targeted at 12 year olds.
The first type of cell historically speaking. They evolved approximately 3.5 billion years ago.
They are smaller than eukaryotes (approximately 1-5 nanometers).
They are simpler than eukaryotes and have only one compartment (i.e. no organelles).
Their genetic material is in the form of circular DNA floating in ...
In this solution I list 6 traits of prokaryotes and six traits of eukaryotes. I also give the student guidance on how to teach these concepts to 12 year old students. I have experience as a middle school science teacher.
