In this unit, students will compare, contrast, and observe prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Students will also practice safe laboratory skills when obtaining, mounting, staining, and observing specimens. Students will:
observe bacteria cells under a microscope.
build a model of a typical prokaryotic cell.
describe the function of each structure in a prokaryotic cell.
compare and contrast a prokaryotic cell with a eukaryotic cell.
observe the structures found in elodea and onion leaf cells.
compare and contrast a typical plant cell with a typical animal cell.
write an analogy for the function of each of the organelles found in a eukaryotic cell.
describe how the biological levels of organization are arranged in increasing order.
