Animal Plant Cells
Terms for animal and plant cells
2 ways Animals get energy from plants
Eating plants or eating other organisms that have already eaten plants.
3 ingredients that the chloroplast uses to make Glucose.
Energy from the sun, carbon dioxide from air, and water.
4 types of Organelles
Mitochondria, cacuole, endoplasmic reticulum (ER), ribosome
7 Parts of an Animal Cell
Nucleus, Vacuole, Endoplasmic Reticulum, Ribosome, Cell Membrane, Cytoplasm, Mitochondria
9 Parts of a Plant Cell
Chloroplasts, Vacuole, Endoplasmic Reticulum, Ribosome, Cytoplasm, Cell Membrane, Cell Wall, Mitochondrion, Nucleus
Allow you to focus the image
All organisms have the same number of chromosomes? True or False?
Give off Carbon Dioxide, Take in Oxygen
Can Animal cells trap energy from the sun to make sugars? True/False
Holds the contents of a cell together. Gives support and shape to cell.
Thin Flexible covering that helps the cell by controlling which substances enter or leave the cell.
States that the cell is the basic unit of all living organisms and only living cells can produce new living cells
Cell Wall (Plant)
Tough nonliving material that acts like an outside skeleton for a plant cell
Cell Wall (Plant)
Gives the Plant cell support, strength and shape.
Microscopic building blocks of all living things
Green substance in the chloroplasts that traps energy from sunlight.
Organelle that makes sugars using carbon dioxide, water and energy from sunlight
Stringlike structure in a cell nucleus that carries information controlling all the cells activities
Tiny hair like structures. Windpipe cells, vorticella and paramecium have these.
A microscope having more than one lens
Example of a Light Microscope
Clear jellylike material that fills the space between the cell membrane and the nucleus. Made mostly of water.
Difference between Plant and Animal Cell
Plant Cells have only one Vacuole, Plant cells are larger, Plant cells have Chloroplasts.
Uses Electrons to make things look up to one million times bigger
Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER)
Organelle that transports materials inside the cell.
Allows you to see the object and also magnifies the image
Simple sugar created during Photosynthesis
Green Color of Chlorophyll
Hides the red, orange, yellow and blue colors in the chloroplasts.
Green substance found inside of the chloroplast
Invented the first compound microscope
Reflects light from another source through the image being observed
Organelles where food and oxygen react to release energy. The powerhouse of cells.
Human cells that work together to help you move, push food though digestive system and keep heart beating.
Act like transmitters to send messages
Long narrow human cells that carry messages from one cell to the next cell.
Part of the cell that controls activities of other cell parts
Magnifies the image on the slide
Tiny structure in the cytoplasm of a cell that performs a special job.
Act of putting together with light.
Process in which oxygen is formed and released by the plant into the atmosphere.
Gives Off Oxygen, Takes in Carbon Dioxide.
Can Animals or Plants make their own food?
Organelles that store plants colors. Chloropasts belong to this group.
Red Blood Cell
Human cells that carries oxygen to your cell and carry waste away from them.
Process in mitochondria where oxygen is used to release the energy stored in glucose.
Organelle that puts together proteins for the cell.
Type of Human cells that cover and protect the body from harmful organisms entering it.
A group of organisms that have the same characteristics are are able to product offspring that can reproduce
Holds a slide containing the object to be viewed
saclike organelle used for storing materials
Single celled organism that are funnel shaped.
White Blood Cell
Human cell that protect you from disease.
