  2. What does  MRSGREN stand for?
    • M-Movement 
    • R-Respire
    • S-Stimuli
    • G-Growth
    • R-Reproduce
    • E-Excretion
    • N-Nutrients
  3. What is the cell theory?
    • -Cells are the basic structural and functional units of life. 
    • - All living organisms are built of cells
    • -All cells come from pre-existing cells
  4. What is the cell wall? where is it found and what does it do?
    The structural layer that surrounds some types of cells, located outside the cell membrane, it works as the structure of the cell and also is like a filtering system for what come in and out of the cell.
  5. What is the nucleus? What can be found inside the nucleus?
    The nucleus is the control centre of the cell, all cells have a nucleus, DNA can be found inside the nucleus.
  6. What is mitochondria? What does it do?
    The Mitochondria's main job is to perform cellular respiration ( ATP- adenosine triphosphate) Which means it takes the nutrients from the cell and breaks it down.
  7. Ribosomes, What do they do?
    Ribosomes are responsible for the production of protein. Ribosomes are found floating inside the cytoplasm
  8. What is the Golgi complex?
    The Golgi complex receives proteins and fats from the rough endoplasmic reticulum and then packs them into vesicles.
  9. What does the endoplasmic reticulum do?
    Involved in the production, processing, transport and storage of materials within the cell. always found located to the side of the nucleus.
  10. What are lysosomes?
    Lysosomes are used to break down waste materials , such as food and other cells that have died
  11. What is the cytoskeleton ?
    The cytoskeleton provides an important structural framework for: Cell shape.
  12. What do chloroplasts do?
    chloroplasts are involved in photosynthesis.
  13. What is flangella and what is cilia?
    The function of the Flagella and Cilia is to move liquid past the surface of the cell. This allows single cells, such as sperm, to swim. For cells attached to a tissue, this moves liquid over the surface of the cell
