Cell Organelle Web Quest Part 1

Today we have the opportunity to do a web-quest. It is important that you are able to use the
internet to research information because you will have to do so many times in college. Whether you use
your own laptop or go to the library to use the computer you will have to be able to use the internet to
learn more information.
We have to be extremely careful when we use the laptops and we have to make sure we are only
on the websites that are required for the assignment. If you are on any other site than the ones written
below you will not be allowed to use a computer and you will earn a zero for this assignment. We also
have to make sure we are passing them out and turning them in quickly so we have as much time on
them as possible. We will pass them in like you have done in Ms. Reiss’s class except you are passing
from the wall to the door.
