Made of cells.

cell wall

Keeps the plant cell firm-gives it its shape.

cell membrane

Controls what goes in and out.

vacuole

Plant cells might have large ones for storage.

chloroplasts

Contain the chlorophyll needed for photosynthesis.

nucleus

Controls the cell.

Cytoplasm

The stuff inside the cells that everything sits in.

Animal cells never have chloroplasts, large vacuoles, or cell walls.

Microscopes needed to see inside cells.

For magnifying., Eye piece and the objective lens give the magnification.
