Class Summary - Today we continued learning about cell structure by discussing the rest of the cell’s organelles and their functions including ER (transport of substances), both rough and smooth, ribosomes (protein synthesis), vacuoles (stores items until peroxisomes can get to them), lysosomes (has digestive enzymes to break down substances), golgi apparatus (packages and modifies), mitochondria (creates ATP), peroxisomes (break down toxins and fats in the cells), flagella and cilia (movement of the cell), and centrioles (used for cell replication). We will discuss each organelle’s anatomy and physiology. Students were then directed to the review games link on the main AP page to review organelles. There will be a quiz on the organelles on Friday.
Homework - Study for quiz on organelles on Friday. Quiz on the reading on page 48-50 on Tomorrow
Objectives - Students will locate and identify functions of cells organelles.
