Transcript of Cells: Building Blocks of Life

Cells:
The Factory Inside All Living Things Cell Theory
All living things are made of one or more cells.
The cell is the smallest unit of a living organism.
Cells come from other cells.

Virtual Cell What is the nucleus? Nucleus Directs the activities of the cell. Inside the nucleus, molecules of DNA are stored. DNA stores genetic information which is passed down from parents to offspring. This determines an organism's traits. What is the cell membrane? Create a nucleus. The cell membrane is a thin, flexible covering that surrounds all types of cells. Cell Membrane It allows food, water, and gases to enter the cell and waste to leave. What part of the school could be a nucleus? Why?
A factory? Why? Any others? Place the nucleus in the cell membrane. What is the cytoplasm? Between the nucleus and the cell membrane is the cytoplasm. All of the remaining organelles are located within the cytoplasm. They are suspended there in a thick fluid. Cytoplasm What part of the school would be the cytoplasm? Why? Factory? Why?

Get gelled water from your teacher to put in your cell membrane. SPI 0507.1.1 Identify the major parts of plant and animal cells such as, the nucleus, cell membrane, cell wall, and cytoplasm.

Virtual Cell Nuclear Membrane

Surrounds nucleus
Made of two layers
Openings allow material to enter and leave nucleus TSW differentiate between the nucleus, cell wall, and cytoplasm.
Vitrual Cell TSW differentiate between the nucleus, cell wall, and cytoplasm.
Vitrual Cell Today's Journey SPI 0507.1.1 Identify the major parts of plant and animal cells such as, the nucleus, cell membrane, cell wall, and cytoplasm.


TSW analyze a Virtual Cell to identify and interpret the
major parts of plant and animal cells such as, the nucleus,
cell membrane, and cytoplasm.

TSW begin constructing a physical representation of a cell
including the cell structures discussed in the lesson.
(Students will add to this representation each day as more
cell structures are discussed.)

TSW differentiate between the nucleus, cell wall, and
cytoplasm.

Cell Inspector Game What is a vacuole? Membrane filled sacs that are filled with fluid. They store water, food, waste, and other substances that the cell processes/uses. Animal cells have many small vacuoles. Plant cells however, have one large, central vacuole. How does this help the plant? When the vacuole is full, the plant cell is rigid/hard. If they lose water, the plant will wilt. What is a ribosome? What part of the school would a vacuole be?

What in your bag of goodies might represent the vacuole? Tiny ribosomes are scattered throughout the cell. Ribosome's job is to assemble proteins. Proteins help the cell to perform nearly all chemical reactions it needs to thrive. Expectations: identify major parts and differentiate.
Virtual Cell Expectations: identify major parts and differentiate.
Virtual Cell Ribosomes Vacuoles What is mitochondria? Mitochondria Large, peanut shaped organelles known as the power plant of the cell. They break sugars apart as they react with oxygen. This helps releast CO2, water, and ENERGY! Number depends on amount of energy the cell needs. Expectations: identify major parts and differentiate.
Virtual Cell Today's Journey 2 SPI 0507.1.1 Identify the major parts of plant and animal cells.

TSW analyze a Virtual Cell to identify and interpret the
major parts of plant and animal cells.

TSW begin constructing a physical representation of a cell
including the cell structures discussed in the lesson.
(Students will add to this representation each day as more
cell structures are discussed.)

TSW differentiate between the cell parts.

Cell Inspector Game What is the rough endoplasmic reticulum? System of membranes and tubes creating passages for materials to pass through. This is dotted with lots of ribosomes! What are lysosomes? small, ball shaped organelles that help the cell break down nutrients and old cell parts (Common in animals, rare in plants.) What part of the school would be the lysomes? Why? Factory? Why?
What in your bag of goodies might represent the lysosomes?

TSW identify cell parts and differentiate. What part of the school would be the rough endoplasmic reticulum? Why? Factory? Why?
What is the smooth endoplasmic reticulum? System of membranes and tubes creating passages for materials to pass through. It breaks down toxic materials and controlls chemical levels! No ribosomes! What part of the school would be the smooth endoplasmic reticulum? Why? Factory? Why?

Pour in the rough endoplasmic reticulum. What in your bag of goodies might represent the smooth er?


SPI 0507.1.1 Identify the major parts of plant and animal cells such as, the nucleus, cell membrane, cell wall, and cytoplasm.

Virtual Cell What is the golgi apparatus? Golgi Apparatus (Golgi Body) Recieves and prepares proteins for "shipment" outside the cell. A system of membranes that modifies and refines proteins that adds compounds to them for protection. What part of the school would be the smooth endoplasmic reticulum? Why? Factory? Why?

Pour in the rough endoplasmic reticulum. What in your bag of goodies might represent the golgi apparatus?

SPI 0507.1.1 Identify the major parts of plant and animal cells such as, the nucleus, cell membrane, cell wall, and cytoplasm.

Virtual Cell So far, how are plant cells and animal cells different? one large central vacuole
very few lysosomes if any What is a cell wall?
How is it different from a cell membrane? Cell Wall Rigid, outer layer that surround a plant cell's cell membrane. It protects the cell and helps the plant stand upright. Pores allow good things in and bad things out. TSW identify and differnentiate cell parts of plant and animal cells. What are chloroplasts? Chloroplasts Found only in plants, they contain pigments that absorb sunlight. (Tshirt discussion)
They use the energy from the sun to make food through what process? Photosynthesis! Where does this take place in the plant? Leaves!

What gives the leaves of a plant their green color? Chloroplasts!! :)

The pigment in them gives plants the green color that we see. Let's revist our KWL... What have you learned? Our Journey SPI 0507.1.1 Identify the major parts of plant and animal cells.

TSW analyze a Virtual Cell to identify and interpret the
major parts of plant and animal cells.

TSW begin constructing a physical representation of a cell
including the cell structures discussed in the lesson.
(Students will add to this representation each day as more
cell structures are discussed.)

TSW differentiate between the cell parts. What in your bag of goodies might represent the DNA? Pull out the yarn. This represents the DNA. What in your bag of goodies might represent the nucleus where the DNA is located? Pull out the petri dish. Secure the DNA strand in the petri dish and tape the dish on both sides. This represents the nucleus. What in your bag of goodies might represent the cell membrane? The envelope will represent the cell membrane. What in your bag of goodies might represent the mitochondria ? Place the pinto beans inside the cell membrane.
This will represent the mitochondria. The elbow macaroni pieces will serve to represent your golgi apparatus. Place them in your cell membrane now. What in your bag of goodies might represent the ribosomes? The small, colored beads will
represent ribosomes. Get them
and scatter them into your cell. Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum What in your bag of goodies
might represent the rough er? The chenille stem (pipe cleaners) with small, colored beads on them will represent the rough er.

Place these in your cell model now. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum The chenille stems (pipe cleaners)
just bent and plain will represent the smooth er.

Place them in your cell model now. The yellow pom-poms will represent the vacuole. Based on what your materials are, is your cell a plant or animal cell? Explain why. Lysosomes The red beads will represent the lysosomes.
Place them in your cell now. What in your bag of goodies might represent the chloroplasts? The green buttons will represent the choloroplasts.
Place them in your cell now if you have a plant cell. If you have a plant cell,
what will represent the cell wall and why?
Place your cell membrane in your cell wall.
