The Cell

Cells are the building blocks of life. In these cells there is a thin transparent sheet controls what goes in, and what goes out,this is called the cell membrane. In the middle of everything there is a dark circular spot which is called the nucleus,the nucleus contains the genes and control centre of the cell. The cell also has the watery jelly like substance which has the nutrients and chemicals. The cytoplasm also holds all the cell organelles together. The cell also has mitochondria,which is the part which performs respiration and gives energy to the cell. The cell also has chloroplast and a cell wall,but they are only found in plant cells. The chloroplast makes sugar for the plant and the cell wall protects the plant from getting infections.

Outcomes Attributes and Features

In my ICT class we have been spending most of our time on this software,'Scratch'. We are using this software to create games which could help with sustainability in the Tamaki Community. This is a drawing that shows the games I had found on scratch and the outcome and features.


What is Photosynthesis?
Photosynthesis is a process in which carbon dioxide and water are used by plants to produce carbohydrate and oxygen in the presence of sunlight.

What are the substances required?
For this process to work,the plant use the sunlight,water and carbon dioxide. The plants make their own food, which is this type of sugar called glucose. The plants use carbon dioxide,water,sunlight,glucose and oxygen in this process.

Living and Non-Living

Non-living things are things that are not alive,dead,but not all of them were always dead. Things like sand and glass were never living,but things like paper were once part of a living tree. Even though they are dead and not living anymore,they can perform living characteristics. Eg. A living animal can move, while a non-living car can do the same. But the differences between these two is that an animal can perform all seven characteristics while a car can not. 

Living things are alive. They show all the seven characteristics of Living things. Non living things can show one or two of the seven characteristics but they can not show all seven characteristics like all living things. Living things perform movement,respiration,sensitivity,growth,reproduction,excretion and nutrients.
