What is a cell?

A cell is the basic unit of life. Examples of a cell are trees in a forest, worms in soil, etc. Cells are considered the basic units of life because they come in discrete and easily recognizable packages. The reason for this is because all cells are have a surrounding structure called a cell membrane.

What's a prokaryote?

A prokaryote is a cell with no nucleus. Their DNA just floats around the cell it's clumped up, but not in the nucleus. Most prokaryotes are just bacteria. A Eukaryote are cells with a nucleus and are usually the "classic cell." Eukaryotes can do pretty much anything. They are the cells that have helped organisms advance to new levels of specialization.
