Cells are the basic units of life, found in all organisms. Cells are made up of different parts, with their own specific roles. Cells work together to allow organisms to survive and reproduce.
The Basics of Cells
4. Slide
60 seconds
Cell Theory: A scientific theory that states that all living things are composed of cells, cells are the basic unit of life, and all cells come from pre-existing cells. Cell Membrane: A thin layer of protein and fat that surrounds the cells and controls what substances enter and exit the cell. Organelles: Structures within the cell that have specific functions, such as mitochondria which are responsible for energy production.
5. Slide
60 seconds
Cells contain tiny organelles called ribosomes that are responsible for making proteins from the instructions in the DNA. Cells can communicate with each other using chemical signals called hormones. The nucleus of a cell is the most important part, as it contains the genetic information that controls the activities of the cell.
