Transcript of Cells
All living things are made up of cells
Cells are the basic units of life
Cells arise from pre-existing cells
An introduction to cells
Create a presentation video
On your iPads use the Explain Everything app to create a video presentation.
Share your work
Once you have made your video- upload it to YouTube.
How to Explain Everything
What do organelles do?
Organelles carry out a range of functions that enable life. These include
Building and transporting materials
Storing and recycling food and waste.
What are Organelles?
Organelles are tiny structures that carry out specific functions within the cell
One of the basic principles of biology. It states that:
Click on the link below to find out more in the TED Ed lesson.
Now visit http://www.centreofthecell.org/interactives/exploreacell/index.php
Have a look around a virtual cell.
Now use your new knowledge of cell organelles to complete the activities at the following website.
Controls all cellular activities
What the cell does and when
Contains DNA in the form of chromosomes
The control center of the cell
The powerhouse of the cell
Provides energy for the cell
Energy is created through the process of cellular respiration
Converts sunlight and carbon dioxide into sugar (food for the plant)
Where photosynthesis occurs
Attached to the nucleus
Makes proteins (cellular machines)
Preparing them for transport outside the cell
A gel like substance
Holds the organelles in place
Provides the cell with shape and some structure
A flexible boundary around the cell
Controls the movement of substances into and out of the cell
An external shell round the cell
Gives the cell extra strength
Made out of cellulose
Used to store water and dissolved substances
Plant cells usually have one large vacuole in the middle.
Vacuoles in plant cells are usually filled with sap
This should identify the main organelles and also compare and contrast plant and animal cells and outline the reasons for differences between them.
You can use a combination of:
Your own pictures/illustrations
Then pin it to the class pinterest page http://www.pinterest.com/callummillard/mr-millards-science-class-cells/
Once you have pinned yours watch the videos pinned by everyone else and leave a comment.
What you liked
Did you understand
Was everything explained
How could it be improved
Can you Identify the
organelles in this real cell
What about the
organelles in this one
Now we know
what a cell is
But what are all those
things inside the cell?
Make sure you name the sources of your information
Here's a catchy song that might help you
remember the organelles.
It might also provide you with some
inspiration for your presentation.
Before you go!
