Learning Goals

Learning Goal

We will investigate the structures and functions of cells, and the environmental factors that influence cellular activity using light microscopes (physical and virtual) and slide staining procedures.

Success Criteria for Full Lesson

  • We will understand and describe the stages of mitosis.
  • We will develop a working understanding of microscopes and the names of their components.
  • We will identify these stages in ‘real life’ with the Whitefish Blastula.
  • We will be able to create “biological drawings” of “Field of View”.

Today’s Work

Part One: Read the Content.  It will give you a detailed account of how mitosis (the act of cell division) takes place.  Note any information that is important or details that you did not already know (review of grade 10 science concept).

Part Two: Now click on the ‘Assignment’ tab at the top of the screen.  Download the worksheet and open the ‘Microscope MME’.  This will take you to a virtual microscope lab.  Complete all sections of the worksheet (do the physical drawings on a separate sheet of paper so you can practise your drawing technique – submit in class).

Success Criteria of Full Lesson

  • We will understand each of the organelles’ jobs within the cell.
  • We will be able to recognize how the organelle’s job will affect the cell if it is removed.
  • We will be able to identify the organelles by appearance.
  • We will be able to label a plant and animal cell.

Today’s Work

  • Work thorough the ‘Cells Alive’ interactive plant and animal cells.  Complete the ‘Fill in the Blank’ worksheet  Label all cell organelles as you complete the worksheet.  Try colouring your cells to make sure you have identified each of the organelles – what they look like and the job they perform in the cell.  
  • Go to ‘The Incredible MegaCell’– it is a comic book and a organelle GAME!!  Now how quickly can you save Professor MegaCell?  Sort his organelles by the jobs that they do and restore them to his body – Do it in time and Prof. MegaCell lives!  ** Class record is 13s !!

Success Criteria for Full Lesson

  • We will develop an overview of the historic development of our understanding of carcinogens (cancer causing agents).
  • We will understand the cell cycle and cell division timing.
  • We will develop an understanding of mutations required within the cell that causes cancer development
  • We will reflect about growth in our understanding of cancer. We will determine what we might change in our lives to limit the potential of having cancer.

Today’s Work

Download this activity worksheet it has the instructions and can be filed in as you work through the video clips below.  Keep in mind that you will be asked to reflect on your learnings after you have completed the worksheet (either a video blog or a podcast – voice recording).   Your reflection should be organized and should cover the following items…

  • The most interesting thing I learned about cancer today was…. because… (give at least 2 reasons why it was interesting).
  • Cancer touches all of our lives in some way, how have you or will you try to lessen the chances of cancer impacting your life?
  • **These podcasts or video blogs will be collected and shared with the class.  Put up your thoughts on the Flipgrid.  Class code: learninghood3c

** If you need to complete this task online (if you did not finish the Tablet activity in class) you can access the videos…

Post your thoughts in the Flipgrid below.  Use your @granderie.ca email address to gain access to post!

Success Criteria for Full Lesson

  • We will develop an understanding of ‘size’ of organelles in relation to cell size.
  • We will review the differences between plant and animals cells.

Today’s Work

Complete the ‘Play-clay Cell’ activity!!!!  

Using the Play-clay construct a plant and animal cell by using the Cells-organelle proportions.  Include all organelles needed for a plant cell and an animal cell… use any of the colours you want.  Take a picture (via your cell phone or camera) and edit the picture so that you can label all cell pieces.  All organelles need to be labeled (off to the right hand side!) on your final creation.  Please submit digital pictures to the dropbox.
