  • Animal and Plant cells
    • All living things are made of cells
      • Cells are small so can only by seen by a microscope
      • Light microscopes are used in school
      • Electron microscopes magnify things thousands of times larger
    • Animal cells have
      • A nucleus
        • To control cells activities
      • Cytoplasm
        • Where many chemical reactions take place
      • Cell membrane
        • Controls movement in and out of the cell
      • Mitochondria
        • Where energy is released during aerobic respiration
      • Ribosomes
        • Where protein synthesis takes place
          • This is the process that Proteins are made on the ribosomes based on information from the genes in the nucleaus
    • Plants and algae cells have:
      • A ridged cell wall
        • Made of Cellulose for support
      • Chloroplast
        • Contains Chlorophyll for photosynthesis
          • They absord light energy to make food
            • Chloroplast
              • Contains Chlorophyll for photosynthesis
                • They absord light energy to make food
        • A Permanent Vacuole
          • Contains the cell sap
        • They have all of the things that animal cells have as well
