Golgi bodies and vacuoles

Because I was so busy canning pears this morning, schoolwork got tossed to the wayside. The only thing we covered was science. We just started studying cell biology (Older Daughter has plant cells, Young Daughter has animal cells).

They've been drawing diagrams and labeling organelles, and wrote out the function of each of the major organelles so they can start memorizing them. After this we'll delve into mitosis and meiosis!

  1. Hehe, we happened to get two kittens when we were doing that at school. To help us remember we called them Mitosis and Miosis. The unusual names stuck and lasted their whole lives, 17 years. To top it off we also got a catfish we called Osmosis :)
