How are ciliated cells adapted to their function?
It's tiny hairs (cilia) wave to push away and trap any dirt and bacteria from entering our lungs.

How are red blood cells adapted to their function?
It hasn't got a nucleus so it can absorb a lot more oxygen. It also has a biconcave shape which increases its surface area.

How are palisade cells adapted to their function?
Palisade cells are found at the top of the leaf to maximise light absorption. They also contain many chloroplasts for photosynthesis.

How are nerve cells adapted to their function?
It has long arms with connections at the end to send signals a long way.
5 of 24
How are sperm cells adapted to their function?
It has a long tail for swimming. The fact that it is small and streamlined helps it to swim faster.
6 of 24
How are egg cells adapted to their function?
It's large so it can store energy for the organism when fertilised.

What is the job of the nucleus?
It contains genetic material, which controls the cell. (the brain)
9 of 24
What is the job of the cell membrane?
It controls what enters and leaves the cell. (the gates)
10 of 24
What is the job of the cytoplasm?
It controls the chemical processes. (the lab)

What is the job of the vacuole?
It stores sugars and salts. (the handbag)
13 of 24
What is the job of the chloroplasts?
It absorbs light energy for photosynthesis. (the solar panels)
14 of 24
What is the job of the mitochondria?
It gives the cell its energy. (the drug store)
15 of 24
What is the job of the skeletal system?
It provides the shape and form for our bodies.
16 of 24
What is the job of the respiratory system?
It supplies blood with oxygen in order for the blood to deliver it to all parts of the body.
17 of 24
What is the job of the nervous system?
It transmits signals to different parts of the body. It is the control center.
