Cell Unit Project
Choose 4 of the following activities to complete. You must choose 1 from each column and your final point
value must be 8 or more.
You will have _____________ days in class and your due date will be _______________________________.
You may work with a partner if you choose, but remember you may need to work outside of class on this
project together.
Be sure to LABEL all products- NAME, CELL STANDARD, and PERIOD.
SB.1.a Students will analyze the nature of the relationships between structures and functions in living cells.
a. Explain the role of cell organelles for both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, including the cell membrane, in maintaining
homeostasis and cell reproduction.
b. Students will explain how enzymes function as catalysts
c. Students will identify the function of the four major macromolecules- carbohydrate, lipid, protein, & nucleic acids.
SB.3.a Students will explain the cycling of energy through the processes of photosynthesis and respiration.
