Students have to explain the functions of various organelles found in an eukaryotic cell. Next, students will select two of these organelles and discuss how the functions of the individual organelles and their division of labor in the cell correlate with some daily activities seen in the “real world.” For example, the golgi apparatus of a eukaryotic cell is responsible for sorting, packaging and shipping proteins and lipids, very much like the post office does with our mail.
