Cells: The Building Blocks of Life
Which of the organisms below has specialized cells to help it function?
Cellular Organelles: Specialized parts within a cell that perform functions such as energy production and waste removal. Cell Membrane: A thin layer that surrounds a cell and controls what enters and leaves it. DNA: A molecule inside a cell's nucleus that carries genetic instructions.
Is able to perform ALL life functions with just ONE cell. (Uni-one... INDEPENDENT. I want to do it all by myself!) You need a microscope to see them. They are TINY! The most common types are: Amoeba Paramecium Euglena Bacteria HINT: These words we don't hear about because they don't need help to survive.
What adaptations do you think single-celled organisms have that help them survive?
Made up of MORE than one cell. They are specialized meaning they all have something different to contribute. (Help! I need someone with a different job!) You need a transport system to MOVE nutrients. There are 2 types of multicellular organisms Plants Animals HINT: Humans, Plants, Animals, Insects, all need help!
Draw / write: What are some differences between single-celled organisms and multi-celled organisms?
What do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of being single-celled or multi-celled?
