Class Summary - Students were quizzed on organelles. Today students will also be introduced to a project. Students will have 2 full class periods to work on the project. Students will be handed out a grading rubric. The idea is to make a comparison of the organelles in the cell to a theme that they get to pick. We looked at an example of a theme of “a cell compared to Santa’s workshop”. The elves were the ribosomes because they were the workers and the fire was the mitochondria because it gave energy in the form of heat etc. No student can have the same theme so we brainstormed some themes. Prezi is a free online program that is really neat and a fun way to do this project otherwise google presentation can be used. Here is a prezi example using a plant cell (student examples should be animal cells). http://prezi.com/vuvsjp3lt0jz/cell-analogy/ Here is the link for the blank cell suggested: hermansonhbiology.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/04_04aanimalcell-u.jpg
Homework - Students should start working on the cell project which is due next Wednesday. (Should be submitted before the weekend for full points - I will not accept late projects for this particular project. You will turn in what you have done).
Objectives - Students will use technology to identify the cell organelles location in a cell and function in a cell.
