Cells of plants and animals

Today we started talking about plant and animal cells and where the pictures that where taped around the classroom belonged on the board. We started doing notes and talking about the cells about the surroundings and protects the cell of the cell membrane. Cytoplasm moves oxygen and food to different parts of the cell. we talked about nucleus and how it's the brain of the cell and it contrals all the cells and what it does. The vcuole is a place in the cell that where all the food or the waste or anything eles that the cell does not need right away. Endoplasmic reticulum foldes the membrane that creates a highway for the cytoplasm and it helps move all the materiaks to the different areas and also in the outside of the cell. The mitochondria breaks down food and relases energy. Cell wall plants are the only cells that have cell walls and have thicker portection beside the cell wall. Chloroplants plant cells only allow cells to use photosynthesis and provides energy from sunlight.

  1. If they/re both cells how come one is square and one is circle?

  2. plants are square because they have cell walls animals cells are circle because they don't have cell walls they only have membrane.
