What do most cell structures have in common/contain? (human and animal cells)
A nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and ribosomes

What does a nucleus do?
Control the cell's activities

What is cytoplasm?
Cytoplasm is where many chemical reactions take place.

What is mitochondria?
Mitochondria is where energy is released during aerobic respiration.

What is ribosomes?
Ribosomes is where protein synthesis takes place.

What do plant and algal cells also contain (as well as everything in an animal cell).
They also contain; a rigid cell wall made of cellulose for support, chloroplasts that contain chlorophyll for photosynthesis; the chloroplasts absorb light energy to make food and they also contain a permanent vacuole containing cell sap.

What are algae?
Algae are simple aquatic organisms which have many features similar to plant cells.

Why are plant and animal cells different?
They are different because they have different functions.
