cellCells Research and Design

Part A: Research various images of plant and animal cells using the following sites or locate your own using a search engine.

Site 1: http://www.biology.ualberta.ca/facilities/multimedia/

Site 2: www.cellsalive.com

Site 3: Wisc-Online Animal Cell

Site 4: Interactive Concepts in Biochemistry - Cell Structure

Site 5: Cell Biology Animation

You may want to print out this chart and keep track of your research. You will use the information to make your own digital cell model.

Part B: Build Your Own Cell Model

Using image editing software (Microsoft Paint, Photoshop, etc) create your own color diagram of the cell. Use the following guidelines. Turn in your model using a flash drive or email.

There are also several online image editors:
Pixlr ( http://www.pixlr.com/editor/ ) Sumopaint ( http://www.sumopaint.com/home/ )
Artpad ( http://artpad.art.com/artpad/painter/ ) | Fundraw ( http://www.fundraw.com/ )
