Cell Model: Option B Research


Choose a specific cell type (specific human tissue or bacteria) to explore its 1) structure, 2) function and 3) malfunction. Viruses are also acceptable if you explain how they affect cells.

What effect does your type of cell (or virus) have on the functioning of the human body?  After researching 5+ reliable informational texts on your chosen type of cell, write a short report (4 or 5 paragraphs) that investigates its structure, function, and malfunction (break-down, illness, injury, or disease).  Be sure to provide evidence from your research to support your work and describe the challenges the cell/tissue faces (or causes) in surviving and thriving.
