The first scientist is a man name Robert Hooke. During one of his days he observed a bark of cork tree and found many circular shapes, which he declared them them to be called cells.
Good morning class! Today we will be learning about the various scientists who helped to evolve our knowledge about cells.
The second scientists we'll be learning about is Robert Brown. This man's contribution was the finding of the nucleus in cells. If it weren't for the nucleus, cells wouldn't have a place to store information!
The third scientist we'll be learning about today is Theodor Schwann. This scientist figured out that cells are the basic structure and function of all animals, and that all animals have cells.
Whoa this is so cool!
The fourth scientist I will be discussing today is Matthias Schleiden. That man came to the conclusion that cells are the basic structure and function of plants, and that all plants, no matter what, have cells.
The fifth scientist that was important in the cell theory was Rudolf Virchow. That scientist figured out that all cells come from preexisting cells.
Overall, these scientists, Hooke, Brown, Schwann, Schleiden, and Virchow all helped people around the world have a better understanding about the importance of cells.
