Origin of Eukaryotes

Yesterday we discussed prokaryotes; their characteristics and examples. Today, we’ll examine the eukaryotic cell and its characteristics. But, before we do, lets take a moment to theorize where Eukaryotes evolved from 1.5 billion years ago.

For today’s warm up, do the “Endosymbiosis” worksheet (pg.41 in yesterday’s packet)

Key ← Use it as a resource, not to copy

Then we’ll be taking some time to learn the parts of a Eukaryotic cell. For those of you in 9th period, I’m sorry that I cannot be there to help guide you. But please watch the YouTube Video or open the PPT in Keynote to complete the “Cell Part Chart” in a paper format or as a PDF.

On Monday, we’ll review the types of cells as well as this chart and the parts of a Eukaryotic cell. Then on Tuesday, we’ll look at some real-life eukaryotes under the microscope. Have a great last weekend of summer!
