Red Blood Cells
Are found in the bllod of animals. They carry oxygen form the lungs to the body cells. Their structure are biconcave, disc-shaped with thicker edges. They are flexible and can fit hrought capillaries.

Cilia cell
They line the nose and breathing tubes of animals. They trap and remove dirt from the breathing systems. They have tiny hair like structures to remove mucus and dirt from the breathing tubes.
2 of 12
Root hair cell
They are found on the surface of roots. They absorb water and dissolved mineral salts from the soil. They are long and thin to reach the soil water.

What is an organism?
It consists of a number of different systems which are necessary to keep the organism alive. e.g. rose, fir tree, human being.
4 of 12
What is the Vacuole?
It is surronded by tonoplast and its cavity is filled with cell sap. It is large in plant cells. In animal cells it is absent or there are numerous very small ones.
5 of 12
What are Stem Cells?
They are cells that have the ability to divide and develop into many different cell types.
6 of 12
What is Chloroplast?
It is only found in plant cells. It contains a green pigment called chlorophyll.
7 of 12
What is the function of Chloroplast?
Chloroplsts produce sugar and starch during photosynthesis.
8 of 12
What is the Nucleus?
It contains DNA and is surronded by a nuclear membrane.
9 of 12
What is the function of the Nucleus?
It controls all the fuctions of the cell. It also stores hereditary (gentic) Information in the chromosomes/DNA.
10 of 12
What is Mitochondria?
Small, rod-shaped structures in which energy rich componds are stored.
11 of 12
What is the function of Mitochondria?
They release energy (during a process called "cell respiration") needed for the normal functioning of the cell
