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

Then we’ll be taking some time to learn the parts of a Eukaryotic cell. 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.

In our next class, we’ll review the types of cells as well as this chart and the parts of a Eukaryotic cell.

Sorry I can’t be with you for our lab today. I’ll be leaving early Friday for Football and will be coming in late on Tuesday from an appointment.

While you’re here, you’ll be working on some water stations. You’ll have 5-6 minutes at each station to complete the activity, record the results, write a conclusion, and clean up before heading to the next station.

When you’re done, please do the “Water Review” questions on the back of the overview you got last class.

The directions are pretty straightforward but there will be sub to help if you need.

Good luck, have fun, and please don’t leave a mess!
