In this lesson you will learn about the cell membrane, nucleus, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and Golgi Apparatus as organelles inside eukaryotic cells
By the end of this lesson, students should be able to:
- describe in details the structures of the cell membrane, nucleus, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and Golgi Apparatus as seen under Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopes.
- list the differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells
- relate structure to function for each of the components of the cell membrane, nucleus and ribosomes.
- use appropriate terminology related to cell biology.
Let’s start by examining the cell membrane, nucleus and ribosomes in the video lesson below. Once again, please take notes as you watch the lesson.
Below are two worksheets: one on the cell membrane and the other on the various organelles present in both plant and animal cells. Use your photographic memory as well as your notes to label all organelles. Answer key is provided.
The structures and functions of the ER and Golgi Apparatus are presented in the video lesson below. Watch it and take notes.
Below is a study note on the Endomembrane System. Please print it out and add more information from the video lesson above.
