Warm Up 1.What are the busiest times for passenger travel? 2.What are the least busy times for passenger travel? 3.How could you use this information if you were a city planner trying to save the city money in terms of energy use? (subways run on electricity)
Biology, September 7, 2009 Objective: To identify the key components necessary to make a town run effectively and apply those same principles to a cell Agenda: –Warm up –Collect labs from last Thursday (in-box) –Design a factory including all necessary components to be fully operational –Distribute books Homework: –Read pp. 5-10 – intro to what we are doing this year –answer questions 1-6 on pg. 10
Factory Design Congratulations! You have been given unlimited funds and resources to manufacture the product of your choice! Your goal is to manufacture as many of your product as possible, as efficiently as possible. What will you need in order to manufacture and export your product from start to finish? Brainstorm ideas with your group and write them down in your science notebooks.
Factory Modifications: Are you ready to go? Have the following factors been accounted for? Entry/ exit to factory- do you want just anyone coming in to the factory, how to safeguard? Where are you keeping the master plan for the factory- the blueprints, the product info, orders, etc? Who gets hired, who is in charge of that? How will your product actually be assembled? How will your factory run? (power source?) Have you provided facilities for eat/drink/bathroom? How will you organize your factory for easy movement around (conveyor belts, walkways…) How will you export your product (truck, plane, boat??) How will you keep your factory clean and maintained?
You’re in Business! Now that all of the needs on the previous slide have been addressed, it’s time to get building! On the poster paper provided, draw a picture of your factory, including all aspects from the previous slide. Be colorful, be creative!
What does this have to do with biology??? So, you’ve figured out what it takes to make a self sufficient production machine… Any idea what in your body is a self sufficient production machine? (hint, there are trillions of them, hard at work even as you read this…)
Thursday, September 10 Objective: to draw comparisons between organelles and parts of a working factory; and to learn the differences between plant, animal, and bacterial cells. Agenda: –Look up organelles and functions, compare them to the factory you built –Go to cellsalive.com and find the difference between plant and animal cells –Draw and label plant and animal cells –Look up bacterial cells…how do they differ from plant and animal cells? Warm Up… see board Homework: review your notes for mini quiz on cell organelles
Cell Parts and Functions Remember these? The cell has to account for the same things…they do so with organelles Factors to consider: 1.Entry/ exit to factory- do you want just anyone coming in to the factory, how to safeguard? 2.Where are you keeping the master plan for the factory- the blueprints, the product info, orders, etc? 3.Who gets hired, who is in charge of that? 4.How will your product actually be assembled? 5.How will your factory run? (power source?) 6.Have you provided facilities for eat/drink/bathroom? 7.How will you organize your factory for easy movement around (conveyor belts, walkways…) 8.How will you export your product (truck, plane, boat??) 9.How will you keep your factory clean and maintained? Organelle that handles this function: 1.You may use the computers to look up this information…
Cell Analogy: The Cell as a Factory Go back to your factory and label each structure with the appropriate organelle name & also in your notebook. Draw this picture of the cell in your science notebook http://www.cellsalive.com/cells/cell_model.htm
How is a plant cell different from an animal cell? Go to the following website: –www.cellsalive.comwww.cellsalive.com –How is a plant cell different from an animal cell? (aside from its shape, there are 3 differences) – list them in your science notebook
Draw and label Draw and label both a plant cell and an animal cell in your science notebook List the structures and functions of each organelle…any questions you have about cells as you write, include them in your notebook
Find out more… Go to the following website: –www.cellsalive.comwww.cellsalive.com What is the difference between a prokaryotic cell and a eukaryotic cell? –Determine whether plants, animals, and bacteria are prokaryotic or eukaryotic
Word bank Create a list of words/ terms associated with the cell… you may look back through your notebook, but on a separate piece of paper create the list. This will serve as a study guide for you.
