The first unit of Grade 9 Biology focuses on the Cell. We will be looking at basic cell structure leading into a detailed look at how things move “Into and Out of Cells”. It can be broken down into the main topics found below. Students are reminded that all homework, assignments and relevant due dates will be posted on VERACROSS and can be found there.
Topic 1 – Introduction to the Cell
In this topic we will look at the discovery of the cell and some current Cell Theory
CELL THEORY – Basic Cell Theory notes
Topic 2 – The Microscope
In this topic we will review the parts of the Microscope and see how it is used to investigate microscopic specimens
Microscope-label – Blank Diagram of the Microscope
How to create a wet mount – Keynote on preparing a microscope slide
Topic 3 – Cell Structure
In this topic we will review the structure and function of the major organelles of the cell including how the structure of the Cell Membrane aids in it’s function.
8Sci_ConsumerBio_BPcells – Review Activity from Grade 8 Science
9Sci_IOC_BlankPlantCell – Blank Plant Cell Diagram
Cell Membrane Structure – This Keynote summarizes the key things to know about the membrane
Topic 4 – Movement into and out of the Cell.
In this topic we will investigate several methods by which materials are move into and out of the cell.
Cell Transport definitions – Keynote to help you with some Key definitions of Vocab
