  • The Cell Theory was developed by many scientists. The first two scientists to make big contributions were Mathias Schleiden and Theodor Schwann.
  • The Cell Theory
  • Mathias Schleiden
  • After a dinner, Mathias Schleiden and Theodor Schwann discuss their scientific discoveries.
  • Theodor, I found that all Plants are made up of these tiny little things called cells.
  • That is interesting Mathias. I too have come to the conclusion that all animals are made up of cells too!
  • Theodor Schwann
  • That means all living things are made of cells and cells are the basic structure in all living things!
  • A few years later, Rudolf Virchow added to the cell theory.
  • Meanwhile, Rudolf Virchow has a brainstorm!
  • I think it takes a cell to make a cell. So all cells must come from preexisting cells!
