This project has good and bad things. The good things are that we’re doing, creating, building our own learning and I’m understanding a litle bit more even though I don’t remember the names of each part. The bad things are because we can’t concentrate much like in regular classes. There is too much noise and you always want to talk to your friends.
I learned that plant and animal cells are different, in cell plants its called cell wall and in animal cells its called cell membrane. I also learned that cell plants have chloroplast which makes them green and animal cells don’t have this.
In cell differentiation I learned that stem cells are the ones that don’t have a job and then they do have a job.
There are some studies that are looking if stem cells can heal some diseases like diabetes.
In the Mitochondria project, I learned that respiration is different from breathing and that mitochondria is what makes respiration happen. I also learned that this process doesn’t happen in humans only but also in all plants and animals.
A good way to understand this is with brain pop because I can see things to understand better. It helps to watch it many times and make pauses in which my Shadow Teacher explains what is going on.
From mitosis I learned that is when cells divide. It has four steps. Prophase is when the cell membrane disappears. Then in the metaphase, the chromosomes line up. Then in the anaphase, the chromosomes separate and finally in the telophase, two mucleus are formed.
