Mr. Gonzalez's Science Classes
We have three 6th grade Science classes and two 8th grade Science classes blogging here from the Pacific Northwest in Chimacum, WA! Sixth graders are learning a bit about Mt Saint Helens, environmental science through fresh water ecology, and physical science this year. Eighth graders are learning about life science this year. Please join us as we learn Science by exploring our world.

Animal cells vs. Plant cells
Plants and animals are both made up of cells. These cells are similar and different in many ways. Both have a nucleus, nucleolus, cytosol, centrosome, cytoskeleton, Golgi, ribosomes, lysosomes, peroxisome, secretory vesicles, cell membrane, mitochondrion, vacuole, a smooth enapasmic reticulum and a rough enapasmic reticulum. The only thing an animal cell has is centrioles, and the plant cells have chloroplast and cell walls.
About the Blogger
I started my teaching career in South Central Los Angeles teaching in modified to full bilingual 4th and 5th grade classes. Then I moved to WA State where I have taught mainly 6th through 8th grade. I have enjoyed the culture clash but notice that kids are the same everywhere :o)
My areas of interest are science and technology but I also love studying ancient cultures and learning about different peoples and cultures.
