As the site describes it, this resource is "These are NOT interactive, on-line lessons, but rather may be printed for use with prospective and practicing K - 8 teachers. Each lesson has six parts, including a biology lesson, knowledge mapping exercise, and glossary for students and for teachers, a teachers' guide for both the biology lesson and knowledge mapping exercise, and a table of persistent alternative ideas."<p/> EXERCISES<p/> <p>1. What are cells made of?</p> <p>2. Dynamic Cell Simulation Introduction</p> <p>3. Simulation Set-UP</p> <p>4. Harvesting Energy from Glucose in the Mitochondrion</p> <p>5. Reading the Genetic Code in the Nucleus</p> <p>6. Preparing tRNAs for Protein Synthesis</p> <p>7. Protein Synthesis on the Ribosome</p> <p>8. Connections and Review</p><p/> OBJECTIVES Once you have completed these exercises you should be able to:<p/> <p>1. Explain and apply cell theory.</p> <p>2. Describe the appearance and function of the major components of a cell, including: cell membrane, cytoplasm, and the following membrane-bound organelles: nucleus, rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, chloroplast, and vacuole.</p> <p>3. Describe the appearance and function of some subcellular structures, including ribosomes.</p> <p>4. Describe how respiration supports protein synthesis which includes copying of DNA into RNA (transcription) and translation of RNA into protein (see Figure 1).</p> <p>5. Understand the roles of some important enzymes and macromolecules in protein synthesis, including RNA polymerase, transfer RNA, messenger RNA, and ribosomes.</p><p/> <p>This resource is part of the <b><a href="http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Coll_ALoom/BiologyLinksforOLPC"> Biology Links for One Laptop Per Child</a></b> course which contains units on Exploring Life; The Cell; Genetics; Mechanisms of Evolution; The Evolutionary History of Biological Diversity; Plant Form and Function; Animal Form and Function; Ecology; and Astrobiology. </p>
