Name one difference between plant and animal cells?
Plant and Animal Cells
Plant cells have a cell wall that helps give them structure. Animal cells have a cell membrane that helps them move and communicate. Both plant and animal cells have a nucleus that contains their genetic material.

Cell: A cell is the basic unit of life. All living things are made up of cells. Plants and animals have different types of cells that work together to keep the organism alive.
Cell Membrane: The cell membrane is the outer boundary of the cell. It is a selectively permeable membrane, which means it allows certain molecules to pass in and out of the cell.
Organelles: Organelles are small structures inside the cell that have specific jobs. Plant cells and animal cells have different organelles that work together to keep the organism alive.

Did you know?
The nucleus of a plant cell is bigger than the nucleus of an animal cell. Animal cells have lysosomes, which are absent in plant cells. Plants cells have a cell wall made of cellulose, which provides strength and rigidity, while animal cells do not.
