Storyboard Text

  • Cell Theory is an old theory, daring back to the first microscope.
  • Let's meet some of the men who contributed to cell theory.
  • This is Robert Hooke. He was he one to coin the term 'cell'.
  • "These small things in this cork remind me of a honeycomb. I shall call them 'cells'!
  • Why he came up with name 'cells' after thinking of honeycombs, I have no idea.
  • Next on our list is Robert Brown. He discovered that cells have a nucleus.
  • "These cells have little things in the center. They must be the core of the cell."
  • Good work, Brown. 
  • Next on our list is Matthias Schleiden, who figured out that all plants are made of cells.
  • "All of these plants are made of cells."
  • He was also a botanist, which explains why he was looking at so many plants.
  • Up next is Theodor Schwann, who figured out all animals are made of cells.
  • "All of these animals are made of cells."
  • He also worked with Schleiden, which helped form the cell theory, but one more man was needed to complete it.
  • The man needed was Rudolf Virchow, who added that all cells come from preexisting cells.
  • "These cells are identical to to other cells. They must come from preexisting cells."
  • With his addition, the cell theory was complete, and helped form the cell theory.
