Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic Cells
This Powerpoint provides the structure and ordering of the unit. The beginning section attempts to link the initial discovery of cellular life with the organic molecules covered during the last unit. Students will learn about Leeuwenhoek's research, the Miller-Urey apparatus, and how the first prokaryotic life on Earth came into existence. After comparing the anatomy of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, students will be given a tour through each of the organelles, membranes, and other components of the eukaryotic cell.
