2Cells Cells are the basic unit of living organisms. The cell theory describes the connection between living things and cells.The cell theory has 3 parts.
3The Cell Theory All organisms are made of one or more cells. The cell is the basic unit of organization of organisms.All cells come from preexisting cells.
4Prokaryote vs. Eukaryote There are two types of cells.Prokaryotic cellsDo not have membrane bound organelles.They make up single celled organisms called bacteria.Eukaryotic cellsContain membrane bound organelles.They make up single and multi cellular organisms.Multi = humansSingle = paramecium
5Organelles Membrane bound structures inside the cell. OrganellesMembrane bound structures inside the cell.Organelles allow specialized functions to occur inside the cell.Some organelles include:MitochondriaChloroplastNucleusPlasma membrane
7Only in Plant Cells Cell wall Chloroplast Large vacuole provides structure and supportalso found in bacteria and fungiChloroplastuses energy from the sun to make carbohydratesLarge vacuoleused for storage
8Only in Animal CellsCentriolehelp cell during cell division
