Anatomy is the study of the human body, all its parts, and how the parts are put together.
Physiology is the study of how these parts work.
Go to at least one of these links each day to study the organelles you are learning.
♦ Centre of the Cell Watch the moving parts of cells. Click on the white circle connected to an organelle to see the name and function. Very simple and easy to understand. Does not include all the organelles, tho.
♦ Cells Alive! See if you can recognize and name all the organelles. Read the organelles at the bottom and see if you can find them in the picture. Hover your mouse over an organelle to see if you are correct.
♦ Virtual 3D Cell Hover your mouse over the 3D cell. Click on the organelles you are learning formore information and a closer view. Some can zoom or rotate. Some will open for you to see inside. If it says click next, click one of the arrows on the left. ►◄
DNA and RNA
►To practice what you've learned, go to the DNA Workshop.
Click on DNA Workshop Activity, then in the pop-up window on the top right, click on Protein Synthesis.
Follow the directions to first build RNA, then match tRNA anticodons to mRNA codons to build proteins from the amino acids.
►Just for fun, you can try this DNA Extraction Virtual Lab.
Look here for examples of Incredible, Edible Cells:

I also like this cake made from a soccer ball pan and fondant.
