Mitochondrion diagram labelling game

You’ve likely heard that the mitochondrion acts as the powerhouse of a cell more than enough times. Now we’ll peer into the complex structures that allow this organelle to produce adenosine triphosphate – or ATP - and thus supply its host cell with the energy to conduct its regular activities. The structure of a mitochondrion […]

Diagram of a leaf labelling game

Just like humans and animals, plants also come with their own set of organs. Among the most crucial organs a plant can have are their leaves – thin and flattened, these structures are adapted to absorb energy from our own Sun to power the processes of photosynthesis. Leaves are primarily composed of three parts – […]

Eukaryotic cell diagram labelling game

What do microscopic amoebae, pine trees, Portobello mushrooms, and giant whales have in common in terms of their cellular structure? All of these organisms have eukaryotic cells, which mean they contain membrane-bound organelles that their prokaryotic rivals sadly lack. Organelles and everything else inside the cell swim in a gelatin-like fluid known as cytoplasm. The […]

Euglena diagram labelling game

Some organisms, like plants, use raw materials from their environment to produce their own food in their bodies. We call these organisms “autotrophs.” Other living things, such as humans and animals, simply eat food to gain nutrients – these are known as “heterotrophs.” The Euglena is strange in that it can both produce and eat […]

Atom diagram labelling game

Atoms of different elements are the basic units that form matter – from the particles of air you breathe, to your favourite food or clothes. While the typical diagram of an atom that you can see online or in charts depicts a nucleus at the center closely encircled by a bunch of electrons, this is […]

Ear diagram labelling game

Ears allow us to make use of our sense of hearing. Such a sense, in turn, lets us enjoy the sounds of our world, from listening to our teammates in video games or sports, to jamming out to the beat of our favourite music. The ear itself is an intricate organ divided into three primary […]

Amoeba cell diagram

An amoeba is a microscopic organism with a wacky, constantly-changing shape. It can be dangerous once it infects a human host, although by observing proper safety guidelines at your lab, it’ll be perfectly fine to observe and experiment on these microbes. Amoebae are a type of eukaryotic organism made up of only a single cell. […]

Life cycle of a cockroach diagram quiz

Cockroaches are a nuisance for most people especially as they live at home and tend to destroy furniture and books. This page explains the life cycle of a cockroach. A cockroach undergoes three developmental stages throughout its life i.e. egg, nymph, and adult stages. Female cockroaches can lay large number of eggs (10 to 55) […]

Life cycle of a moth diagram quiz

Moths are like the dusky, fluffy cousins to butterflies. Indeed, they share many things in common – from the general shape of their wings to the way they grow from caterpillars to adults. Upon closer inspection, however, moths do bring something new to Nature’s table. They usually have darker-colored wings, and enjoy flying at night […]

The life cycle of a lion quiz

Lions belong to a group of feline mammals called the “big cats,” alongside other cats like the cheetah, jaguar, leopard, and the tiger. Female lions carry baby lions in their belly for roughly three to four months. It’s likely that two to three cubs are born during each pregnancy. Oddly enough, lion cubs start out […]
