Plant and Animal Cells

The Microscope helps scientist develop the cell theory

 

1. A cell is the basic unit of structure and function in living things. 

2. he cell performs all of the life functions

3. A living thing can be as small as a single cell as in bacteria. 

4. A living thing can also have millions of cells, each with a different job as in a human.

The Cell Theory

1.All living things are made up of one or more cells.

2.Cells are the smallest living thing, the basic unit of structure and function in living things.

3.Cells are made from other cells.

Compare and Contrast the Plant and Animal Cell

1. Plant cells are rectangle shaped, Animal cells are more of a circle shape shape.

2. Plant cells are arranged in a grid, kind of like bricks . Animal cells are all smooched together.

3. Plant cells have a Cell wall and Chloroplasts.

4. Plants have a larger Vacuole then animals
