ap biology organelle facebook project by UN8fq49


									       the cellular network: Facebook style…
Your task:
We are in the midst of studying all the organelles that make up Eukaryotic cells. To approach this centuries-
long studied material, you will utilize technology of the 21st century. Your role is the webmaster. You will
need to arrange and create Facebook pages for each of the organelles. This job will require you to be creative
and imaginative. The purpose of this activity is to assist you and others in learning the names, locations, and
functions of all of the organelles in a Eukaryotic cell.

The Requirements:

A. The project must include the following list of structures & organelles:

      Cell Membrane
      Chromosomes & Chromatin
      Nuclear Envelope
      Nucleus
      Nucleolus
      Ribosomes
      Lysosomes
      Mitochondria
      Golgi Apparatus
      Centrioles
      Vacuole
      Peroxisomes
      Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
      Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
      Cytoplasm
      Cytoskeleton
           o Microtubules
           o Microfilaments

      Chloroplasts (plants)
      Cell Wall (plants)
      Cilia & Flagella
      Intercellular Junctions
           o Plasmodesmata
           o Tight Junctions
           o Desmosomes              Choose 1
           o Gap Junctions
      Plastids (plants)
           o Chloroplasts
           o Amyloplasts           Choose 1

      Chromoplasts
B. Incorporate the following components into your Facebook pages:

   1. Organelle Name
   2. Location of Organelle in the cell
           You may want to include any specific animal cell types the organelle is prevalent in, in your
              social networks
   3. Hand drawn colorful picture(s) of the organelle for your profile picture & albums
   4. Info & Bio: description (function of the organelle)
   5. Friends of each Organelle (who works with the organelle?)
   6. Sample Wall Posts (must include three posts per organelle)

C. Creativity Counts:
  1. Each “Facebook” page needs to be neatly hand-drawn out or typed using a facebook template.
  2. Use color to make your pages interesting.
  3. Spelling and information presented must be accurate.
