Transcript of Cells
Like a polar bear's "white" fur blends in with the snow
What I Wonder
Cells are important because they make up all living things
They are very important to all forms of life
The Big Idea
Cells are way too small to be seen with the human eye alone, so microscopes are required to study them
Cells are small because they are easily replaced that way
Also because it would take a long time for materials to travel through the membrane
Size of Cells
Prokaryotic vs Eukaryotic
Specialization of Cells
Plant cells have chloroplasts
Cells get the nutrients from photosynthesis
Plant cells gets water from osmosis
Cells matter to us because all living things are made up of tiny cells
How do Cells work?
How do Cells communicate?
How does a Cell know its job?
What Makes Something
Things that make up an organism
The chemical processes that occur within a living organism in order to maintain life
The making of a new offspring through a sexual or asexual process
Like how plants spread seeds
Eukaryotic has nucleus
Eukaryotic has membrane-bound organelle
Eukaryotic's DNA is more complex
All living organisms begin life as a single cell. Multicellular organisms add more and more cells to form more tissues and organs as they grow
Growth is the increase in size and mass of that organism
Development involves a transformation of the organism as it grows
It's the largest molecule
It has four classes and made up every cell in the body
After they detect a stimulus, organisms must provide a response in order to account for the change
This can be very important to their survival
Security & Structure
The Nucleus is important because it controls the cells
The Nucleus contains DNA and all the genetic information for the cell
Passageway & Transportation
Smooth endoplasmic reticulum function is lipid and carbohydrate synthesis.
Cell wall act as a pressure vessel
Cell membrane function is to protect the cells from its surrounding
Cytoskeleton gives structural frame work for cell shape.
Golgi apparatus function is to modify, sort, and package macromolecules for cell secretion
Rough endoplasmic reticulum function is to produce and modifies proteins.
Certain Cells are tasked with a specific job to do
Lysosomes function is to break down lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins
Mitochondria function is to converts energy
Chloroplasts are found in plant cells, they are convert sunlight into energy required for the plant to stay alive and grow
The Vacuole is found in plant cells. Its function is to hold materials and wastes
It also functions to maintain the proper pressure within the plant cells
The Nucleolus takes up of the volume of the nucleus
Carbohydrates (Provide fuel and build structures in the body)
Proteins (Provide structural support, storage)
Nucleic Acid (DNA & RNA)
Lipids (Stores energy and regulate metabolic processes)
