    • heterotrophs
    • cells - tissue - organs - systems
  6. Differences between animal and plant cells?
    • plant cells have larger vacuoles to store more water, stand rigid, use for photosynthesis, store food from photosynthesis
    • plant cells have a cell wall to help keep its shape, protect it, give it its rigit structure, substitute for skeletal system, help grow upright and contain cellulose which is food for herbivorous animals
