1: I hate science! All my teacher does is give me tests over stuff don't understand. I study hours but I still fail. I am just going to stop studying! I give up! I am going to sleep.

2: Where am I? | Where am I? | Your in a dream silly! I see you need help for your cell test tomorrow! I can help you with that!

3: I'm glad you asked, I am Matthias Schleiden . I was born on April 5, 1814 and I was a German. I enjoyed studying plant structures under the microscope. I was the co-founder of the Cell Theory. I collected my data from a regular plant. I collected from more than just one plant cell. I got to see the similarities if all plant cells were the same. I found out that all plant cells had a “jail” like wall hat covered the inside of the cell. That is why I called it a “cork” cell. | I am Robert Hooke. I am form England. I went on doing the Law of Elasticity, and being a microscopist. I was born on July 18, 1635. I was the first man to make microscope which zoomed into micro organisms. I died before I was able to make a better and improved model of the microscope. | Who are you Mister?

4: I, Theodor Schwann was born on December 7, 1810. I was a German man that was a great scientist. I did my career as a Cell Theorist. I found the animal cells through a microscope, after I collected some data from animals. When I put the animal cell underneath the microscope I found the cells irregular shape. I was the first man to find information about animal cells. | I am Rudolf Virchow. I was born on October 13, 1821, and I was a German scientist. I was a doctor, and I did some government jobs. I established the concept of pathological processes by my use of the cell theory to explain disease in the organs and tissues of the body. I explained that diseases arise,not in organs or tissues, but initially in their individual cells.I campaigned for social reforms and contributed to the development of anthropology.

5: so, you can help me understand cell theories? | Of course we can help you understand the cell theories! While observing dead cork samples with a crude lens, Robert Hooke identified and named “cells.” He thought that the small, simple units looked like the bare prison cells of his time, and the name cell stuck. His work launched a new frontier in scientific exploration that led to modern cell theory: All living things are made of cells. Cells are the basic units of structure and function in all living things. All cells come from the reproduction of existing cells.

6: Animal cells don’t have a cell wall. The cell wall is the outer layer that provides structure for the plant cell. . Animal tissues need an external or internal support of some sort. Centrioles are structures that help mitosis and are generally not found in plant cells, while they are found in animal cells. Animal cells do not have chloroplasts, which are common in plant cells. Chloroplasts are structure that take give the plant its green pigment. Both cell types have vacuoles, however, in animal cells vacuoles are very tiny or not there, while in plant cells vacuoles are generally quite large. Vacuoles are structures that store food, waste, and water. Ribosomes, however, are found in all the cells and make proteins. Both animal cells and plant cells both have a nucleus which is the command center of the cell. Animal cells contain Lysosomes which contain the cell's digestive enzymes. Mitochondrian are found in both Animal and plant cells and are structures that release chemical energy from glucose during ceullar respiration. The Nucleolus is the region in the nucleus which assembles ribosomes. Cilia is usually found in animal cells and propel the cell through its environment. Cytoplasm is a watery substance that is found in all cells. | What's the difference between plant and animal cells?

7: The Cell Membrane is a flexible lipid bilayer. It is specialized in which it contains specific protein and lipid components that let it preform its role for the cell. The components of the membrane may: protect, regulate transport in and out of cell, and provide a stable site for catalysis of enzymes. Homeostasis is the ability of a cell or organism to maintain equilibrium by adjusting its physiological processes. | I still don't know what a cell membrane is or what homeostasis is! Can you explain that too, Mr. Schwann?

8: WHOA! I had the weirdest dream EVER! Oh no it's 8:30! I have to get to school soon! And I have a test today!

9: Thanks Hooke, Schwann, Virchow, and Schleiden! | YOUR VERY WELCOME! | THE END
