8 Class Assignment Read pages 9-15 with your partner. Write down 3 things that you learned from the reading in the notes section of your journal.
9 Bell Work 8/18/10Why do you think the invention of the microscope was important? (pg 12)What do scientists mean when they say that life comes from life? (pg 13)
10 Characteristics of Life OrganizationThe ability to develop and growThe ability to respond to the environmentThe ability to reproduce
11 The Cell All living things are made of cells. The cell is the smallest unit of a living thing.The cell is the basic unit of function in an organism.What activities that plants and animals do are carried out by cells?
12 The Cell Theory Every living thing is made of one or more cells. Cells carry out the functions needed to support life.Cells come only from other living cells.

16 Bell Work 8/20/10Fill in the blanks (you only have to write the answer)____ confirmed the cell theory by proving that the theory of spontaneous generation was wrong.When an organism is made up of only one cell, it is called a(n) _____ organism.Hooke used a(n) ______ to observe cells from the bark of an oak tree.An individual living thing that carries out the activities of life is called a(n) _____The smallest unit that is able to perform the basic activities of life is a(n) ______.A frog is a(n) _____ organism.
17 Bell Work 8/23/10 Please write complete sentences. What is the role of the cell membrane?Give 3 examples of multicellular organisms.
18 Vocab 1.2Cell membrane (p.20) – a protective covering enclosing an entire cell.A layer that controls what enters or leaves the cell.Cytoplasm (p.20) – A thick, gelatin-like material contained within the cell membrane.Most of the work of the cell is carried out here.
19 Eukaryotic cell (p.20) – a cell in which the genetic material is enclosed within a nucleus, surrounded by its own membrane. (most multicellular organisms)Nucleus (p.20) – The structure in a eukaryotic cell that contains the genetic material a cell needs to reproduce and function.Organelle (p.20) – A structure in a cell that is enclosed by a membrane and that performs a particular function.Prokaryotic cell (p.20) – A cell without a nucleus and without organelles. Genetic material is in the cytoplasm. (most unicellular organisms)
20 Cell wall (p. 21) – Only plant cells have these Cell wall (p.21) – Only plant cells have these. A tough outer covering that lies outside the cell membrane.Chloroplast (p.23) – An organelle in a plant cell that contains chlorophyll, a chemical that uses the energy from sunlight to make sugar.Mitochondria (p.23) – Organelles that release energy by using oxygen to break down sugars. Found in plant and animal eukaryotic cells.
21 Bell Work 8/24/10 A cell with no nucleus Match the definition to the correct term. Please write the term and the definition on your bell work sheet. When finished please begin working on your cell coloring sheet.A cell with no nucleusA cell with a cell wall and a nucleusA device for viewing microorganismsa. eukaryoticb. prokaryoticc. microscoped. telescopee. plant cell
22 Bell Work 8/25/10 Please have out your cell coloring sheet While working on the bell work please observe the peaches (no more than 3 people at a peach)Bell work question – list three structures found in plant cells that are not in animal cells. Tell why each is not necessary in animal cells
24 Organisms are classified by their cell type Most of the organisms alive on Earth today are made of single cells3 domains for living things that are based on characteristics of their cells.Archea – organisms that can live in extreme environmentsBacteria – can also live in extreme environments and can multiply quicklyEukarya – includes plants, animals, and fungi
25 Prokaryotesunicellular organisms with prokaryotic cellsCytoplasm contain ribosomes but no organellesStructure is simpleHave a tough cell wall that protects the organismEukaryotesCells with a nucleusIncludes almost all multi-cellular organismsAlso includes unicellular organisms called protistsCells are complex in structure and larger than the cells of prokaryotes
27 Cells in multicellular organisms specialize Specialization – Specific cells that perform specific functions.Different types of cells have different jobsExample – most animals have blood cells, nerve cells, and muscle cellsExample – plants have cells that function in photosynthesis, cells that draw water from soil, and cells that function to support the plant’s weight.
28 Tissue – group of similar cells that are organized to do a specific job Ex. skin tissue – provides protection and support for a humanEx. Leaf tissue – provide protection and support for a plantOrgan – a structure in an organism that is made up of different tissues working together to perform a particular function.Ex. Eye – allows sightEx. Leaf – provides a plant with energy and materials
