Welcome to the wonderful world of Cells!

11 January 2019 By In Kinglee Blog

Welcome to the wonderful world of Cells! Did you know that all living things are made of cells? Well in Mr. Hodge’s 8th Grade Science class, the students learned a very popular song on the topic and then began to create their own 3-D Cell. Students showed that they can identify and describe parts of cell by building a 3 dimensional (3-D) model of a eukaryotic cell.

Eukaryotic cells are cells that contain a nucleus and organelles, and are enclosed by a plasma membrane. Organisms that have eukaryotic cells include protozoa, fungi, plants and animals. These organisms are grouped into the biological domain Eukaryota. Eukaryotic cells are larger and more complex than prokaryotic cells, which are found in Archaea and Bacteria, the other two domains of life.

Each student had to choose a type of eukaryotic cell and build a 3-D model. Students developed an understanding and appreciation for the complexities of life. Using their textbooks and class notes, students will each construct a 3D representation of a cell with at least 12 labeled cell parts, evaluating separately a few ways his or her model differs from real cells. Mastery is shown by learning things like a cell is the basic functional unit of all living organisms (discuss Cell Theory). A cell is alive (life-defining characteristics include being made of cell(s), undergoing metabolism, reproducing, growing, responding to stimuli, and adapting to the environment through successive generations). Levels of Biological organization and unicellular vs multicellular organisms. The processes of cellular transport/metabolism and the associated vocabulary. Most important they learned to have fun learning science!
