This Foldable page should be printed up with the "FoldableInside" page printed on the back. Students are to use color pencils to color each organelle a different color. Each flap on the foldable will have the name of an organelle written in the color that was used on the front diagram. The flap inside will have the explanation of the organelle as stated in the note page included in this folder. For the Animal Cell it is necessary to include the Rough and Smooth Endoplasmic reticulum together on one flap, as there are only 8 flaps, and 9 total organelles.  50k v. 1 Feb 25, 2017, 3:18 PM Kathy Blakemore

For the Plant Cell it is necessary to include the Rough and Smooth Endoplasmic reticulum together on one flap, and ignore the Cell Membrane (we already highlighted this one on the Animal Cell) as there are only 10 flaps, and 11 total organelles  65k v. 1 Feb 25, 2017, 3:19 PM Kathy Blakemore

On occasion, Paleontologists discover fossilized skeletons that are complete, so there is no doubt how to assemble the bones. If only part of a skeleton is found, we rely on scientists who study the anatomy and physiology of modern day animals, are very familiar with how their skeletons and muscles work together. We use this knowledge about modern animals to assist us as we assemble skeletons of extinct organisms.  245k v. 1 Feb 25, 2017, 3:19 PM Kathy Blakemore
