G7 Week 09 – S2

Friday, March 31st – F & H period

Today in science: F & H period students continued working on the following assignments: Animal & Plant Cell Diagrams (assignment #6), Cell Organelle Descriptions – Appearance and Functions (assignment #7), Animals & Plant Cells Worksheet (assignment #8), and Short Story – A Cellular Journey (assignment #9). Any students ready for assignment #10 received that assignment from Dr. M on an individual basis.

Homework: Students should give 20 minutes of effort to any of the assignments listed above.

Thursday, March 30th – All periods

Today in science: Students continued working on their Animal & Plant Cell Diagrams (assignment #6) and their Cell Organelle – Appearance and Function(s) descriptions (assignment #7). Any students finishing both of these assignments during the class period were then asked to begin working on the Animals & Plant Cells Worksheet (assignment #8) and the Short Story – A Cellular Journey (assignment #9).

Homework: Students should give 20 minutes of effort to any of the assignments listed above.

Tuesday-Wednesday, March 28-29th – All periods

Today in science: After updating the table of contents in their Classroom Science Binders, students were asked to continue working on their two labelled diagrams: one animal cell and one plant cell. Students who completed their diagrams then began working on a new document describing the appearance and function(s) of the 7 types of organelles found within the cell diagrams. Students can use some of the links below as resources:

  1. Utah State 7th grade integrated science website
  2. Enchanted Learning animal cell anatomy
  3. Enchanted Learning plant cell anatomy
  4. Cell organelles chart
  5. NEW! Biology 4 Kids cell structures (look to the top right of the webpage, where you will see links to each of the important cell organelles)

Homework: Students should give 20 minutes of effort to either their animal and plant cell diagrams (see below) or the new document in which students needs to describe the appearance and function(s) of the 7 types of organelles found within the cell diagrams. The new document needs to be done on lined paper.

Monday, March 27th – All periods

Today in science: After briefly discussing the lab notebook grades for Investigation #6, students were asked to begin creating two labelled diagrams: one animal cell and one plant cell. Although some of our classroom textbooks contained three dimensional examples of cells (3D animal cell, 3D plant cell), Dr. Merritt would also strongly recommend creating a two dimensional (2D) diagram of the two types of cells instead.

Homework: Students should give 20 minutes of effort to their animal and plant cell diagrams, the details of which were discussed in class. The animal cell diagram must include the following (5) components: cell membrane, mitochondria, nucleus, cytoplasm, and vacuole. The plant cell diagram must include the following (7) components: cell wall, cell membrane, mitochondria, chloroplasts, nucleus, cytoplasm, and vacuole.
