Microworlds WebQuest



Complete the following using the resources provided:

1.  All three sections of the Microworlds Worksheet(What is a cell?-Levels of Organization- Cell Organelles).   Read Microsoft Word Document at bottom of this page FIRST...then use websites to find more information.  It's there...you just have to search for it!

2.  Cell Organelle Worksheet using the knowledge you have gained and any additional research.

3.  Compare your assigned organelle to a part of the school and prepare a 3-4 slide PowerPoint presentation describing the cell organelle, its function, and how it compares to a part of our school.

4.  Turn in your completed Worksheet and Cell Organelle Worksheet on presentation day.


What is a Cell?

Levels of Organization

Cell Organelles

Cell Organelles-Cytoplasm

Cell Organelles-Vacuole

Cell Organelles-Cell Wall

Cell Organelles-Chlorplasts

Alive Interactive Cell

The Virtual Cell - The Virtual Cell is an online Cell Biology textbook. It provides students with an interactive journey through the cell.

The Cell and Its Organelles - Play the Incredible Megacell Game.

Animal Cell Interactive - Explore an animal cell.

Cell Structure and Functions - Learn more about the organelles in plant and animal cells.

Animal Cells - The schematic represents an idealized animal cell, e.g., a liver cell. The columns to the left and right of the labels contain links to discussions of the particular structures.

Cells and Organelles - An overview of plant and animal cells.

Drag and Drop Cell Organelles - Test your knowledge of the cell by matching each structure with it's function by dragging the organelles to their proper spaces.
