All living things are made up of cells. Humans have close to three trillion of them when they are adults. Organelles are smaller parts of the cell that each have their own function in the cell. The most fundamental forms can be found in plants and animals. Plant cells are designed to completely aid in the process of photosynthesis. It contains a large vacuole solely to handle all the water that photosynthesis creates. It takes a great deal to make that process successful for plants. Plant cells have a thick outer wall to help them handle all the water that is created by this process. Animal cells are designed to replicate a little faster. Many different animal cells have shorter cell cycles than plant cells which helps them to make copies of themselves faster.
The worksheet collection takes a deep look at all the parts of the various cells. We include fun puzzles along with your standard function sheets.
