Click on “Animal Cell” Read the text and follow the directions. (Click on each organelle and read about what it does)
3) Name and define 3 of the organelles that we are learning about. a) Prokaryotic cell
b) Animal cell
c) Plant cell
Click “continue” and answer the “Pop-up Questions.” When you are finished, click on “Plant cell” and read the text.
