Cells are the basic building block of life. Throughout our body, there are different types of cells, each performing a specific function.
They all work together to help us live, grow and survive.
We can break cells into two categories Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes
As you’ve probably noticed, plant cells and animal cells don’t look the same. Although in some ways they are similar, in other ways they are very different.
Bellow illustrates the differences between plants and animal cells, in terms of organelles and structures.
You’ll notice that plants and animals have vacuoles, but the actual size of a plant’s vacuole is much larger than an animals. Animal vacuoles are also temporary, while plants vacuoles are always there.
Another distinguishing feature are the chloroplast.
