Write your information using bulleted notes.

1. Go to link #1 or #2 – Choose animal cell. Roll over the cell and go into the labeled parts to learn more about them. Write bulleted notes on something new you learned. The first link provides more animation and audio making it more interesting to use but is more challenging. You must double click on a labeled part to get the audio.

2. Use the same link, #1 or #2, from above and click on the plant cell. You must scroll below the diagram to find it. Write bulleted notes on the parts listed below.

(1) Chloroplast




(2) Cell Wall



(3) Vacuole




3. Go to link #3 – The Virtual cell – Go through the parts of the cell and find 2 new facts about any of the cell parts. Write about them. Click on the part to get more information.

10. Click on # 13 –
http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks3/science/organisms_behaviour_health/cells_systems/revision/1/

Read each part and answer the following:

(1) Click on the orange bullet for Cells and write about 2 facts about cells in this section





(2) Go back and click on the orange bullet, animal cells and plant cells –

What is found in both plant and animal cells?

What is found only in a plant cell?




(3) Go back and click on the orange bullet, cells and their functions – What does it mean for a cell to be specialized?




Name 4 specialized cells in this section and state how their structures help the cells to function



(4) Go back and click on the orange bullet, cells, tissues, organs and organ systems – Define tissue, organ and system and give examples of each.






11.Click on #17 – Watch the video by pressing view – Take notes on any new and/or interesting information you learn

13. Click on #20 – Before you begin this interactive activity, you should know that animal cells can have vacuoles called vesicles. They are not in all animal cells and if they are in it, they are small compared to the vacuole of a plant cell. Do the parts of this interactive shown on the right of the page : introduction, plant cell, animal cell and construct a cell. Omit the section on the prokaryotic cell. Name the structures in a plant cell but not in an animal cell.
