Cells & Homeostasis: Types of Cells

Today we learned about the three major cell types: prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and archaea.  The PowerPoint included detailed notes on the similarities and differences of the cell types, and concluded with a SciShow video about the tardigrade.  Students then had time to read through the extremophiles reading packet which is due Wednesday.

As a reminder, we will meet in our classroom at the beginning of the class period, after which we will head down to the library for a meeting with Christine Froschl, Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator at the Environmental Science Center at Seahurst Park.  Ms. Froschl will be speaking to us about the ESC and will prepare us for our upcoming field trip to Seahurst Park.
