Prokaryotic Cells

We have studied plant and animal cells, or Eukaryotic cells,  on several occasions, but we have yet to study Prokaryotic cells with the younger boys.

The Eukaryotic cells have organelles, which each have their own tasks to perform in order to maintain the life of the cell, and the DNA is stored in the nucleus of the cell.
Sam's notebook page (10th grade), October 2012
A Prokaryotic cell, on the other hand, contains no organelles and the DNA strands are throughout the cell.

Kingdom Monera contains all organisms that have Prokaryotic cells. Bacteria are the most well known members of this family.
Next week, we will be exploring the factors that affect the growth of bacteria cells.

  1. I've got my next science post coming up on Wednesday. I'm trying to figure out some kind of regular plan for getting my favorite types of posts up each week. I'm still working it through, but it's coming to me.

    In relation to your actual post.... For some reason I've always found the names prokaryotic and eukaryotic amusing to say. I don't know why, but they always make me smile when I hear them.
