9/03/14 “Edible Cell Intro.” INB P. 43 Sponge: 1. Which cell part would be most like MARTA? Explain. The endoplasmic reticulum because it transports things. 2. Instead of people what would this part carry? It would carry proteins to different parts of the cell.
Windows Notes: Draw the following Table under you sponge: INB P. 43 Write 3 facts from the video.Write 3 reactions to the video. Write 3 questions you had from the video. Write 3 ideas you had from the video.
The Incredible Edible Cell!!! Due: Wednesday, September 10
The Incredible Edible Cell Bring a folder or binder for project materials to help you stay organized. Please see if a parent can come in and help on the due date! You must follow all directions completely in order to achieve the highest grade possible: 300 project points.
Guidelines GOAL: Your task is to create a model of a cell that is made completely of edible things. That’s right… you will be able to eat this cell after you are through! In your journey, you will also create a paper describing the main parts of your cell, as well as create a blueprint of your cell and a table detailing the items you will use for construction. (If acquiring your products is a financial difficulty please see me for alternative arrangements). You must follow all directions completely in order to achieve the highest grade possible: 300 Project points ROLE: You are a super scientist trying to create a cell that will help others understand how the cell is organized. Your paper will serve as a journal explaining cell organization, structure and function. AUDIENCE: Your audience is young children who are learning about plant and animal cells and how they work. SITUATION: Your project must explain to your audience the locations, structures and functions of cell organelles in a way that is fun and in a language that is easy to understand.
PRODUCT: Your project consists of three parts. For each of the three parts (depending on your cell selection), you must include the following cell organelles. CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING: *ANIMAL CELL (round shape) 9 organelles plus transport protein and molecule Cell Membrane Cytoplasm Mitochondria Ribosome (free or on ER) Endoplasmic Reticulum Golgi Bodies Lysosome Vacuole (few & small) Nucleus *PLANT CELL (square or rectangular shape) 11 organelles plus transport protein and molecule Cell Membrane Cytoplasm Mitochondria Ribosome (free or on ER) Endoplasmic Reticulum Golgi Bodies Lysosome Vacuole (one & large) Nucleus (Nucleolus/Nuclear Membrane/DNA) Chloroplast Cell Wall
Part 1: The Paper- 100 points EACH INDIVIDUAL must turn in a typed or neatly handwritten paper explaining all of the organelles discussed in class. It would benefit you to describe the relationships that exist between many of the organelles. You may either write a science fiction story, newspaper article, brochure, etc. Check with me if you have another idea. You should include each of the organelles: 1.One paragraph describing what type of cell you are describing - EUKARYOTIC, PROKARYOTIC, PLANT or ANIMAL 2.A sentence describing the organelle’s structure (its appearance and/or location) 3.One sentence on the organelle’s function (its job) 4.The paper should also explain how transport/receptor proteins move molecules across the cell membrane. ***Descriptions on Animal cells have 11 organelles; *** Descriptions on Plant cells have 13 organelles
Part 2: Key and Blueprint- 100 points EACH TEAM must create a key and blueprint for your edible cell model so that others can tell what cell part (organelle) your food represents. Use your resources to help you decide what foods would best represent each cell part. Food items should look similar to the structure of the organelles i.e. a nucleus is round and has a nucleolus inside so a jawbreaker cut in half with the small round center exposed would best represent the nucleus and nucleolus.
Key (50 pts): Create a chart or table that states both food part and the organelle or cell part each food represents. This should be typed or neatly written OrganelleHow organelle is represented in your model Golgi BodyRed bubble tape looped back and forth CytoplasmCake or cookie batter Endoplasmic Reticulum
Blueprint (50 points): Create a drawing of what your cell model will look like when you have created it. It should be a drawing of a cell as a cookie/cake. The foods and which organelle the food represents must be clearly shown and labeled. You must make sure that organelle location is appropriate. This will act as your blueprint as you construct your cell model. Placement of organelles/food items must match between your blueprint and model.
Part 3: The Model & Labels- 100 points This is the fun part! EACH TEAM needs to build your cell model. Each part needs to be made of the food part listed on the data table. You will be graded on how accurate your model is and how close your actual model was to the drawing - i.e. if the nucleus was in the middle of the drawing then the food nucleus needs to be in the middle of the model. The model must contain two parts in order to receive full credit. These parts are: Labels (50 pts): Each food item must have a label. The label must state on one side what organelle the food represents. The other side must have bulleted points that state the function of the organelle. Labels must have a support like a flag so they can be fastened into your food items. For example: FrontBack Lets wastes out Lets nutrients in Protects cell Cell Membrane
Part 3: The Model & Labels- 50 points Edible Cell (50 points): This is the actual model of the cell. EACH TEAM will be graded on how close the actual model is to the drawing made in Part 2 and you will be graded on content. You need to make sure that each item that was written in your data table is represented in the actual cell model. ANIMAL CELLorPLANT CELL
GRADING You will be graded according to the rubric below. Four categories will be assessed as follows: Content: Paper: Does your paper describe the location, structure and function of each cell organelle listed in the product description? Table/Blueprint: Does your table list each organelle in the product description, its function, and the representing candy? Does your blueprint depict each organelle from the product description? Model: Does your model contain each organelle from the product description? Accuracy: Is the information in your paper, blueprint, table, and labels presented correctly and accurately? Are the items used to construct your model accurate representations of the individual organelles (i.e. do they look like the organelles they represent)? Presentation: Is the information in your paper, blueprint, table, and labels neatly handwritten or typed? Is your model constructed using the appropriate materials Creativity: Does your project represent your original thought? Is it creatively designed?
