Due to the morning and afternoon activities on Friday, the cell organelles (multiple-choice) quiz has been moved to Monday. Tuesday will begin a series of lessons on the importance of the cell membrane (diffusion, osmosis, active transport, homeostasis).
We will begin this week with a review of prokaryotic vs. eukaryotic cell properties, then continue on to organelle functions. We will begin and end this mini-unit with a connecting activity that emphasizes how certain cell organelle functions mimic the specialized functions of a school (locked doors with an intercom system = cell membrane, principal = nucleus, etc). Organelle notes will take up roughly 20 minutes of each class on Tuesday - Thursday, so make sure that your child always has his/her science notebook on hand. We'll end the week with a quiz on Friday.
