Today in class we compared and contrasted plant/ animal cells. We also made our paper models of our plant cells.
- plant cells have chloroplasts for making their own food through photosynthesis and animal cells do not
- plant cells have 1 large vacuole for storing water and animal cells have many small vacuoles
- plant cells have cell walls for support and structure and animal cells do not
Both animal and plant cell paper models/ study guides should be completed. If they are not it is your responsibility to get them done before I grade your notebooks next week.
