Cells are the building blocks of all living organisms. They provide structure for the body, take in nutrients from food and carry out various specialised functions. Our cells contain structures called organelles. These are the factories that carry out all the processes needed for the cell to survive and function. The organelles make proteins, process chemicals and generate energy.
The first part of the Cell Snap activity is a memory game which introduces you to the structures in the cell. You must find matching pairs of organelles against the clock and in as few moves as possible.
In the second part of the activity you explore the functions of the different organelles. Clicking on the different cell components reveals their role within the cell. You can use the accompanying worksheet to note down the functions of each organelle for future reference.
