Animal cells

1. Nucleus ­ contains the genetic material that controls the cell
2. Cytoplasm ­ where chemical reactions happen, contains enzymes
3. Cell membrane ­ holds the cell together and controls what goes in and out
4. Ribosomes ­ where proteins are made
5. Mitochondria ­ where…

Guard cells

1. They open and close the stomata (pores) in the leaf
2. Kidney shaped
3. When the plant has a lot of water the guard cells go plump (turgid) and the stomata stays open so gas
exchange can happen
4. When the plant has low water the guard…

Digestive system is made up of
1) Glands - salivary glands and pancreas - produce digestive juices
2) stomach and small intestines - absorbs soluble food molecules
3) liver - produces bile
4) small intestine - absorbs soluble food molecules
5) Large intestine - absorbs water from undigested food -…

Transects ­ they show how organisms are distributed along a line
o You measure out a line and either you count the number of organisms you are interested in that touch
the line or you can use a quadrat moving along the line

Enzymes and Digestion

Digestive enzymes break down big molecules into smaller ones
o Starch, protein and fats are big molecules - they are too big to pass through the walls of the
digestive system
o Sugars, amino acids, glycerol and fatty acids are smaller molecules ­ they can pass through…

Stem Cells

Embryonic Stem Cells can turn into any type of cell
o Some cells are undifferentiated ­ they can develop into different types of cell depending on what
instructions they're given ­ these are stem cells
o Stem cells are found in human embryos ­ all the different types…
