ABSENT: Please make a venn diagram of plant and animal cell in your notes. Please make sure it is very detailed.
No Date Set Yet
If you were absent on the cell organelle day in class, this post is very important for you to get caught up.
You need to print out this page (see me if you don't have a printer, I will print out a few.) Then you need to study the cell organelles because you will have a quiz on it and you will be writing a story on them.
Then with the "Inside a Cell worksheet", you will write a story about your journey into the cell. It can be a plant or animal cell. Please be creative and specific with your story and include all the organelles. The planning page below is to help you brainstorm for your story. Please fill out and turn in to Ms. Molina by Tuesday, September 2nd.
Then using your planning page that Ms. Molina graded, you will type and print a rough draft. Please see the Microscope lab blog post for the date that the rough draft is due in class.
If you have any questions, please talk to a classmate or Ms. Molina.
