Plants & Protists

  1. 1. Bellringer Cancelled on Short Week
  2. 2. Agenda  Collect Homework – Cell Metaphor Assignment  Notes: Plants & Protists – Specialized Plant Organelles – Protists: Jack of All Trades
  3. 3. Plant Specific Organelles  Plants cells have all of the organelles that Animal cells do.  They also have a few organelles that animals do not have. – Cell Wall – Chloroplasts – Central Water Vacuole
  4. 4. Cell Wall  The cell wall surrounds the membrane of plant cells.  It is made of a tough, fibrous material called cellulose.  It provides support and protection for the cell.
  5. 5. Chloroplasts  Chloroplasts are the organelles where photosynthesis occurs.  Photosynthesis is when light energy is captured and used to combine water and carbon dioxide into glucose (sugar).
  6. 6. Central Water Vacuole  The central water vacuole is a large vacuole in plants that stores water.  It also keeps turgor pressure, which is the pressure exerted on the cell wall that helps a plant remain upright.
  7. 7. BrainPOP: Cell Types
  8. 8. Protists  Protists are very diverse lifeforms.  They are eukaryotic organisms that may be unicellular or multicellular and may be consumers or producers.  There are 3 categories of protists – Animal-Like – Plant-Like – Fungus-Like
  9. 9. Protozoans (Animal-Like)  Unicellular, so similar to bacteria  Eukaryotic, so similar to plants & animals  Protozoans move by use of flagella, cilia, or pseudopods.
  10. 10. Pseudopod Movement  Pseudopods are also called ‘false feet’  Cell membrane pushes in one direction & the cytoplasm flows into the bulge. The protozoan moves by dragging the rest of the cell behind it.  Pseudopods can also be used to surround and trap food
  11. 11. Pseudopod Feeding
  12. 12. Ameoba Movement Video
  13. 13. Algae (Plant-Like)  Some algae are multicellular, so they are similar to plants (kelp/seaweed)  Euglena are unicellular algae that perform photosynthesis, but will act like consumers when there is no sunlight
  14. 14. Euglenoid Video
  15. 15. Slime Molds (Fungus-Like)  These “blobs” are decomposers who move to feed on dead material  Like plants these have cell walls, but the wall is not made of cellulose
  16. 16. Slime Mold Video
  17. 17. Summary  Plants Cells Contain: – Chloroplasts – Cell Wall – Central Water Vacuole  Protists – Animal-Like (Protozoans) – Plant-Like (Algae) – Fungus-Like (Slime Molds)
