The objective of this WebQuest is to
provided 9th grade Biology students an interesting way to learn about the function of organelles. 

would recommend using this project to teach students about the function of organelles Students will learn the functions and will create analogies between the function of each organelle and a school. . It will expose them to key ideas and key terms as well as
allow them to use technology.

State Standards (CA):

The fundamental life processes of plants and animals depend on a variety of chemical reactions that occur in specialized areas of the organismís cells. As a basis for understanding this concept:
a. Students know cells are enclosed within semipermeable membranes that regulate their interaction with their surroundings.

c. Students know how prokaryotic cells, eukaryotic cells (including those from plants and animals), and viruses differ in complexity and general structure.

e. Students know the role of the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus in the secretion of proteins.

Prerequisite Skills: Comfort level with the Internet and Microsoft Word
Time Required: Two weeks.
Technology Needs/Materials Needed: Linked worksheets and websites as well as the Internet and Microsoft Word.
