Ms. Pipes/Kuylen's 7th Grade Science Portal

Current Learning Topic: 
Cell Structure & Function
 
We are investigating cell structure (what in the world is in a cell?) & function (what does it do?).   
TEKS: 7.1A7.1B7.2A7.2C7.2E7.3A7.3B7.3C7.3D7.4A7.4B7.6A7.12C7.12D7.12F
 
VOCABULARY:
  • Cell – the basic unit of structure and function in living organisms
  • Cell membrane – regulates what goes into and out of the cell
  • Cell theory – all organisms are composed of one or more cells
  • Cell wall – gives structure to plant cells
  • Chloroplast – site of photosynthesis in plant cells
  • Cytoplasm – fluid that surrounds the organelles
  • Emergency safety equipment – equipment such as an eye / face wash, a fire blanket, and a fire extinguisher used to take care of an emergency situation
  • Mitochondria – converts energy from food into energy a cell can use
  • Nucleus – controls functions of cells and contains genetic material
  • Organelle – differentiated structure within a cell that performs a specific function
  • Organic compound – class of chemical compounds that are formed from carbon, but may contain other elements (SPONCH)
  • Protective safety equipment – equipment, such as goggles and aprons, used for protection in an experiment
  • Vacuole – storage area for cells; water storage in plants

 

Students will create 3-D cell models and presented them to their classmates.
