Students were tasked with completing the reading from Chapter 1 of Inside the Cell (assigned yesterday) and turning in answers to the Got It questions on page 19. Next, students received eight index cards on which to create flash cards of the following cell organelles:
- cell membrane
- endoplasmic reticulum
- Golgi apparatus
On the front of the card, students wrote the name of the organelle. On the back of the card, students explained the function of the organelle and were encouraged to draw a picture that would help them remember the function of the organelle. The flash cards are due tomorrow and must be completed before the student can participate in the Gizmo simulations of cell structure and function.
