Material Detail



This site has been created to show students how cells work. It reviews the functions of the cell organelles. This web site focuses on the structure and function of the cell membrane. Students will learn how the organelles interact with each other to keep the cell alive. This web site adds to the knowledge of most middle school students about organelles and expands to how the cell works as a whole. Scientists who study this area are known as cell physiologists. Physiology is the study of the function of living things.

What is remarkable about this web site is the clarity of content. This resource
describes how cell membranes function with scientific accuracy but in simple
language. Although this web site was written for middle school students, I
will use it with my college non-major Biology students to supplement the
textbook description of osmosis and diffusion. This is a fun site to
investigate - the facts are interesting!!!!

This is a great website that shows organelles of a cell and their functions. The website has a "Organelle Review" page which directs you to a page with links to all the organelles which gives all the functions of each organelles. The graphichs are not too great for the organelle but I think students will get the idea.
