Welcome to 6 th Grade Cell Jeopardy

Question for Column 1 $100 The invention of this item made it possible for scientists to discover and study cells.
Column 1 Answer $100 The microscope
Question for Column 1 $200 If you observed a cell that contained lysosomes, for cleaning up old food, broken parts, and other wastes, you would know that you were looking at a(n) ______ cell.
Column 1 Answer $200 An animal cell (Plants don’t have lysosomes.)
Question for Column 1 $300 Using a microscope, your friend is observing a cell. She says, “This animal cell has a rectangular cell wall and lots of little green chloroplasts.” What is your friend’s error?
Column 1 Answer $300 Animal cells don’t have chloroplasts or a cell wall, so she’s probably looking at a plant cell.
Question for Column 1 $400 This is the name of the scientist that discovered cells. He called them cells because they looked like little rooms.
Column 1 Answer $400 Robert Hooke No actual pictures exist, but he probably didn’t look like that.
Question for Column 2 $100 This organelle is the control center of the cell. If the cell were a business, this organelle would be the manager.
Column 2 Answer $100 Nucleus E.R.
Question for Column 2 $200 This is the outer boundary of the cell. It allows items to pass in and out of a cell.
Column 2 Answer $200 Cell membrane
Question for Column 2 $300 This is the reason that vacuoles are much larger in plants than in animals.
Column 2 Answer $300 They store water. Animals can move, and they are able to find water more easily than a plant, which cannot move.
Question for Column 2 $400 These tiny, grain-shaped organelles make proteins. You will find them attached to the endoplasmic reticulum and floating through the cytoplasm.
Column 2 Answer $400 Ribosomes
Question for Column 3 $100 A group of similar cells that work together is called a ________.
Column 3 Answer $100 Tissue
Question for Column 3 $200 Certain types of cells perform specific functions. These cells divide up the labor to benefit the entire organism. What do we call these cells found in humans, plants, and animals?
Column 3 Answer $200 Specialized Cells They are found in many- celled organisms.
Question for Column 3 $300 Cells in many-celled organisms are often quite different from each other. Which of these creatures has specialized cells? Amoeba (one-celled) Violets Bacteria Zebra
Column 3 Answer $300 The violets and zebra. Specialized cells are found only in many-celled organisms.
Question for Column 3 $400 Some creatures are unicellular. Their whole body is just one cell. On the other hand, the term for an organism that is composed of many cells is _______.
Column 3 Answer $400 Multicellular Animals, plants, and humans are all made of many cells.
Question for Column 4 $100 True or False? In the cell cycle, all cells divide at the same rate.
Column 4 Answer $100 False
Question for Column 4 $200 During replication, all the information that a cell needs to carry out its functions is copied. What do we call this genetic information that is passed on from parent to offspring?
Column 4 Answer $200 DNA
Question for Column 4 $300 The cell cycle is necessary for three very important reasons. Name all three reasons that cells divide.
Question for Column 4 $400 Assuming no cells die during this process, how many total cells would there be if one parent cell divided, then those daughter cells divided, then those daughter cells divided again?
Column 4 Answer $400 There would be 8 total cells if none of them died.
