Well for starters, a cell is the basic building block of all living things!
In the 1665, a man named Robert Hooke discovered cells. He called them cells because of how they looked like a cell where monks lived.
Mr. Hooke's findings were important as his were the first actual steps in identifying cells. Without it, other scientists wouldn't have been able to develop the rest of the cell theory we have today.
All organisms are composed of one or more cells. The cell is the basic unit of structure and function. All cells are from preexisting cells.
What are the three components of cell theory?
Good job class! I'm so proud of how far you've all come to understanding the origin of cells. It's true, Mr. Hooke laid the groundwork for other scientists to add to the cell theory. I think our world would be a lot different without his discovery!
