Cell TheoryAll living things are made up of cells. Cells are the smallest parts of all living things. All cells come from other cells that divide to make new ones.

Definition of CellA cell is the smallest unit that is able to do life tasks.Examples of Cells

One celled organismPlant StemRed Blood Cell

Nerve Cell

BacteriaTypes of Cells We Will Study

PlantAnimal Parts of Cells Both cells have organelles in them.Each organelle has a special job to do to help the cell function.We will only be learning about some of the organelles.http://library.thinkquest.org/C004535/eukaryotic_cells.htmlhttp://waynesword.palomar.edu/images/plant3.gifTypical Plant Cell

Typical Animal Cell

CytoplasmGel-like mixtureAll organelles are in the cytoplasm

MitochondriaProduces energy by chemical reactions that break down fats & carbohydrates
