Slide 1

Plant and Animal Cells

By: McNutt & Brown

Slide 2

Essential Questions

  • What are the basic cell parts?

  • What is the function of cell parts?

  • How are the structures of the animal cell and plant cell similar? And different?

Slide 3

Vocabulary to know

  • Cell

  • Cell wall

  • Cell membrane

  • Nucleus

  • Chloroplasts

  • Cytoplasm

Slide 4

Did you know that you and oak trees are both made of cells?

What is a cell you ask…???

A cell is a tiny part of a living thing. Your cells and the cells in oak trees are different from each other, but not as different as you think.

A plant cell actually has more parts than an animal cell.

Slide 5

What is a cells “job”?

  • Its job is to take in nutrients and get rid of waste.

Slide 6

What does a plant cell look like?

Slide 7

Do I have to know all of that?NO…

  • You need to know: cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, chloroplasts, and cytoplasm

Slide 8

What do all of those things do?

  • As you can see in the diagram, a plant cell is surrounded by a cell wall. This is what protects the cell. The walls of a plant cell sticks to each other to give the plant its shape.

Slide 9

Cell Membrane

  • Just inside the cell wall is the cell membrane. This thin membrane allows water and nutrients to pass into the cell. It allows wastes, including oxygen, to pass out of the cell. It also stops things from entering that could harm the cell.

Slide 10


  • Near the center of the cell is the nucleus. The nucleus controls the cell’s growth. The plant’s genes are in the nucleus of its cells.

Slide 11


  • The green chloroplasts in the cell produce food for the plant. The chloroplasts combine sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide from the air to produce sugars which in turn give the plant energy to grow.

Slide 12


  • The rest of the plant cell is filled with cytoplasm. This is much like jelly. Much of the cell’s work takes place in the cytoplasm.

Slide 13

What about an animal cell?

  • As you can see, animal cells have some of the same parts as plant cells.

Slide 14

They are very similar in the fact that they both have…

  • Nucleus

  • Cytoplasm

  • And a cell membrane

Slide 15

How are they different?

  • They do not have cell walls. This is actually an advantage. With no cell walls, animal cells can take different shapes. For example, animal cells can become nerve cells, muscle cells, blood cells, etc.

Slide 16

Animal cells do not have chloroplast

  • This is not an advantage…as you know, animals cannot produce their own food. They must get energy from eating plants, and other animals. Therefore animals depend on plants, and animals that eat plants, to survive.

Slide 17

Does size matter???

  • No, but both plant and animal cells are very small (you cannot see them with out a microscope).

  • Animal cells tend to be smaller than plant cells. Even though the largest plant cell is only about 100 micrometers wide. (A micrometer is 1/1,000,000 meter. WOW!! That’s tiny!!

Slide 18

So let’s review…

  • Both kinds of cells contain cell membranes, cytoplasm, and a nucleus.

  • A plant cell also contains chloroplast and a cell wall.

Slide 19

Quiz Time!

Which of these is NOT made of cells?

  • a rock

  • An ant

  • Moss

  • A stick

Slide 20

Which part is NOT found in an animal cell?

  • Cytoplasm

  • Cell wall

  • Cell membrane

  • Nucleus

Slide 21

Which statement is true?

  • The nucleus gives the cell its shape.

  • Plant cells are filled with jelly-like chloroplasts.

  • An animal cell can become a bone cell.

  • A plant cell can become a nerve cell.

Slide 22

Which statement is true?

  • The cell wall allows materials to pass in and out of cells.

  • Both plant and animal cells have a cell membrane.

  • The genes for plant cells are in the cytoplasm.

  • A plant cell produces food in its nucleus.
