Cells By: Bailey herron

the smallest structural and functional unit of an organism, typically microscopic and consisting of cytoplasm and a nucleus enclosed in a membrane. Microscopic organisms typically consist of a single cell, which is either eukaryotic or prokaryotic. Cells are only visible under a microscope.

Animal cell

Eukaryotic cell

Range in size between 1 and 100 micrometers

Lack of rigid cell wall helps develop diverse tissues and organs.

most animal tissues are bound together in an extracellular matrix.

Plant cell

a plant cell is eukaryotic

In photosynthesis, the sun's solar energy is converted to chemical energy. The chemical energy is stored in the form of glucose

Carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight are used to produce glucose, oxygen, and water

Photosynthesis occurs in eukaryotic cell structures called chloroplasts. A chloroplast is a type of plant cell organelle.


a single celled organism that doesnt have a nucleus with a membrane or other specialized organelles

Prokaryotes were the only form of life on Earth for millions of years until more complicated eukaryotic cells came into being through the process of evolution.


an organism with a complex cells in which the genetic material is organized into a membrane-bound nucleus.

animal and plant cells are eukaryotes
