A question of scale
Every living thing is made up of a cell. Cells are the simplest unit of living matter that can exist and reproduce alone.
The unit we use to measure cells is micrometer.
1000 micrometers = 1 millimeter; 1000 millimeters = 1 meter
Cells are the basic units which make up living organisms. They are microscopic therefore cannot be seen properly unless magnified. Most cells are less than 0.1 mm in diameter.
