S: Seasons of Change

FC: Cells | CELLS

1: Electron Microscope | An electron microscope is a type of microscope that uses a particle beam of electrons to illuminate the specimen and produce a magnified image. Electron microscopes have a greater resolving power than a light-powered optical microscope.

2: Cell theory | 1. the idea that cells are the basic unit of structure in every living thing. 2. new cells are formed from other existing cells. 3. cells are a fundamental (basic)unit of structure.

3: Hooke- Helped develop compound microscope; Gave the cell its name after observing thin cork sections. Schleiden- said "All plants are composed of cells" Schwann- Said "All animals are composed of cells Virchow- Said "All cells come from other cells | Cell theory scientists

4: Prokaryote | A prokaryote os a singe celled organism, it does not contain a nucleus. prokaryotes divide rapidly and some don't need oxygen to survive. Also some can make their own food

5: Animal Cell | Animal cells are eukaryotic sells enclosed by a plasma membrane and organelles. animal don't have a cell wall, they are single celled organisms | Plant Cell | Plant cells are also eukaryotic cells, and unlike an animal cell it has a cell wall.the chlorophyll that gives the plant its green color also heps the plant make its own food. By using sunlight to convert water and carbondioxide into glucose (sugar) into food for the plant

6: Cell Wall | The Cell Wall is the outer layer of a plant cell. It also takes in nutrients for the cell. | Lysosome | Lysosomes are membrane-enclosed organelles that contain an array of enzymes | Lysosomes are membrane-enclosed organelles that contain enzymes that break down waste Lysosomes also digest excess or worn-out organelles

7: Cilia | The function of the cilia is to move the cell. | Flagella | A flagella is how some cells and microorganisms move. Flagella are whip like tails that are used to move the organism forward.

8: Ribosomes are the sites of protein synthesis, where RNA is translated into protein. When cells need large numbers of proteins, they must first build numerous ribosomes. | Ribosome

9: Cell Membrane | The cell membrane controls what goes in and out of the cell. It takes in and releases materials. Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_function_of_a_cell_membrane#ixzz1a3dTaZxT

10: Rough E.R. Vs Smooth E.R | Rough ER contains ribosomes on its surface, small circular structures that control protein synthesis, making it look bumpy under a microscope. Rough E.R branches out and expands as protein synthesis increases, providing more surface area for ribosomes to spread out and create more proteins | Smooth ER has a few different functions in the cell, and its functions can vary with cell type. In general, the function of smooth endoplasmic reticulum is to provide surface area for the action of enzymes and to provide storage space for these important enzymes.

11: Central Vacuole | The plant vacuole stores food, water, and wastes. It gives support to soft structures, such as leaves.

12: Golgi Apparatus | The Golgi apparatus is an organelle found in most eukaryotic cells.it is made up of membrane bound sacs that serve as the packaging and distribution center of the cell

13: LIght Microscope | is a type of microscope which uses visible light and a system of lenses to magnify images of small samples..

14: Nucleus | A nucleus is a circular item located at the middle of the cell. it controls what goes on in the cell and also were DNA is stored

15: Cloroplast | Chloroplasts are organelles (compartments) found in plant cells. It also helps with photosynthesis. | The main function of the mitochondrion is to produce energy for a cell, The cell uses the energy to perform the things necessary for it to survive and function. | Mitochondria

16: Eukaryote | A eukaryote is an organism whose cells contain complex structures enclosed within membranes.
