    Learning Objectives

    Content Objectives

    • Learn the primary cell and tissue types found in plants (the -enchymas)
    • See how tissues are composed of cells that work together to perform a similar function
    • Understand how different tissues can work together to perform a united function as an organ

    Skill Objectives

    • Differentiate between parenchyma, collenchyma, and sclerenchyma
    • Use Toluidine Blue stain to locate cell types in different plant tissues
    • Identify the function and cell type of specialized cells
    • Make a thin section of plant tissue where you can clearly see cell types
