What are cells?

Cells are the main component for living organisms. Without cells in organisms there will be no life.

Plant cell

These are some cells that are in a plant:

Nucleus: the nucleus is the main control centre in a cell

Cell wall: a thick membrane that surrounds the outside of the cell. This gives it most of its structure.

Nuclear membrane: A membrane that surrounds the outside of the nucleus.

Nucleolus: This is where Ribosomal RNA is produced.


Mr green is a term used to evaluate if a organism is living or non living.

M- Movment

R- Reproduction

G- Groth

R- React to stimuli

E- Exchange of gases

E- Excrete

N- Nutrition

Parts of a microscope

A microscope is used to deeply look into a specimen.

Here are a few parts of a microscope.

Base: The bottom of the microscope. Used for support.

Lens: Lens that you look through. Usually 10X or 15X power

Stage: Flat platform where you place your slides.

Arm: Supports the tube and connects it to the base.

illuminator: this is the light source that provides light to better investigate the specimen.

Osmosis and Diffusion

Osmosis is the diffusion through semi permeable membrane from a diluted solution to a concentrated solution. An example of osmosis is absorption of water through plant roots.

Diffusion is the movement of particles from a region of high concentration to a lower concentrated area. A good example of diffusion is when you cook food in your kitchen the odour spreads around the house.
