Go to each of the links and answer the questions below. WEBSITE #1: http://www.cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model.htm Click on “animal cell” to begin the cell exploration. 1. Scroll over the animal cell diagram on the website to identify the organelles in this picture: 2. Using the organelles from the diagram above, fill in the chart with the correct term. Click on the diagram from the website to find information about each part. Organelle Fact Packages macromolecules for transport elsewhere in the cell Contains enzymes necessary for intracellular digestion Proteins synthesized on these ribosomes collect on this organelle for transportation throughout the cell Provides energy that the cell needs to move, divide, & produce Responsible for storing nutrients & waste products, and increase cell size during growth. The place where ribosomes are produced Click on “plant cell” to begin the cell exploration. 3. Scroll over the animal cell diagram on the website to identify the organelles in this picture: 4. Using the organelles from the diagram above, fill in the chart with the correct term. Click on the diagram from the website to find information about each part. Organelle Fact Provides and maintains the shapes for plant cells and serves as a protective barrier. Continuation of the nuclear membrane without the of ribosomes Contains the DNA which is responsible for providing the cell with its unique characteristics Has pores for controlled entry and exit of things Provides energy that the cell needs to move, divide, & produce Contains chlorophyll which is responsible for making the plant green and gives it the ability to absorb energy from sunlight Website #2: http://www.scsc.k12.in.us/SMS/Teachers/Martin/replacementlink.htm 1. How many cells do humans roughly have? 2. If a cell is cut in half, will it survive? 3. TRUE or FALSE: Some organisms are made up of only one cell. 4. If new cells come from old cells, why doesn’t each new cell only have half of a nucleus? 5. Click on the “Next page”. Within an organism, some cells are not the same. Explain the difference between muscle cells, skin cells, and nerve cells 6. Do all cells contain DNA? WEBSITE #3: http://www.scsc.k12.in.us/SMS/Teachers/Martin/replacelevelsoforganization.htm 1.
