Week 6 specialization of cells and their functions


Sept 22 2014
QFD : don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened ..dr.Seuss
?FD : compared and contrast the similarities and differences between a eukaryotic cell, a prokaryotic cell and viruses in a perfect paragraph
Today’s learning objective : students will know and understand the differences in various cell types, their specializations, the differences in structure and function of specific organelles, the hierarchy of cell types in regards to genetic material and DNA structure, by creating and presenting a google doc presentation that describes these differences .. Students will also think about a hypothesis for developing a bacteria colony using a Petri dish with live agar, and a cotton swab. ( we have permission to go almost anywhere in the school to obtain cultures) each group or will be investigating a different place )

From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes How do organisms live, grow, respond to their environment, and reproduce? All living organisms are made of cells. Life is the quality that distinguishes living things—composed of living cells—from nonliving objects or those that have died. While a simple definition of life can be difficult to capture, all living things—that is to say all organisms—can be characterized by common aspects of their structure and functioning. Organisms are complex, organized, and built on a hierarchical structure, with each level providing the foundation for the next, from gthe chemical foundation of elements and atoms, to the cells and systems of individual organisms, to species and populations living and interacting in complex ecosystems. Organisms can be made of a single cell or millions of cells working together and include animals, plants, algae, fungi, bacteria, and all other microorganisms. Organisms respond to stimuli from their environment and actively maintain their internal environment through homeostasis. They grow and reproduce, transferring their genetic information to their offspring. While individual organisms carry the same genetic information over their lifetime, mutation and the transfer from parent to offspring produce new combinations of genes. Over generations natural selection can lead to changes in a species overall; hence, species evolve over time. To maintain all of these processes and functions, organisms require materials and energy from their environment; nearly all energy that sustains life ultimately comes from the sun.
