3 ) Construct an explanation of the function (e.g., mitochondria releasing energy during cellular respiration) of specific cell structures (i.e., nucleus, cell membrane, cell wall, ribosomes, mitochondria, chloroplasts, and vacuoles) for maintaining a stable environment.

[SC2015] BIOL (9-12) 2 :
2 ) Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe the function and diversity of organelles and structures in various types of cells (e.g., muscle cells having a large amount of mitochondria, plasmids in bacteria, chloroplasts in plant cells).

Subject: Science (7 - 12)
Title: Animal Cells StudyJam
URL: https://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/animals/animal-cells.htm
Description:

Animal cells have many functions that support the life of the animal. Animal cells also have lots of different parts, including the cell body, cytoplasm, mitochondria, nucleus, vacuole, and cell membrane.

The classroom resource provides a slide show that will describe the structures of an animal cell. After utilizing this resource, the students can complete the short test to assess their understanding.

5 ) Examine the cycling of matter between abiotic and biotic parts of ecosystems to explain the flow of energy and the conservation of matter.

a. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about how food is broken down through chemical reactions to create new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as it moves through an organism.

b. Generate a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis and cellular respiration in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms.

Title: Plant Cells StudyJam
URL: https://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/plants/plant-cells.htm
Description:

The cells of plants include several parts, such as the cell body, cytoplasm, mitochondria, nucleus, vacuole, cell membrane, cell wall, and chloroplasts. Only plant cells have plant walls and chloroplasts.

The classroom resource provides a slide show that will describe the structures of a plant cell. In addition, there is a sing-along video that students can perform karaoke-style that will help them remember the different structures. After utilizing these two resources, the students can complete the short test to assess their understanding.

Title: Cells 2: The Cell as a System
URL: http://sciencenetlinks.com/lessons/cells-2-the-cell-as-a-system/
Description:

This lesson is the second of a two-part series on cells. This lesson encourages students to view the cell as a system. Students will begin to understand the cell as a system by exploring a more familiar and tangible example of a system: a factory. Throughout the lesson, students will compare the factory to a cell, beginning to understand how both can be thought of as a system. The first lesson in this series is Cells 1: Make a Model Cell.

Title: Cells 1: Make a Model Cell
URL: http://sciencenetlinks.com/lessons/cells-1-make-a-model-cell/
Description:

In this lesson, students will compare a plant and animal cell and then make a model of a cell. They will select items to represent various cell structures and justify their choices by describing how the items they have chosen represent the actual parts of a cell. Prior to this lesson, students should have at least been introduced to cells, including the basic differences between plant and animal cells. This lesson is the first of two-part series on cells. The second lesson in this series is Cells 2: The Cell as a System.
