1. How does the size of a cell in a frog compare to the
size of a cell in a whale?
2. What makes a whale so much larger than a frog?
• All life is made of cells
• Cells discovered after microscope invented
• 1665: Robert Hooke first observed cork (dead
tree bark)
– Boxes he saw reminded him of tiny rooms
– He named the empty boxes “cells”
• Three Parts:
– 1) All organisms are
made of cells
– 2) The cell is the most
basic unit of life
– 3) Cells come from other
• What’s the big problem
with this theory?
Where did the 1st ever cell come from?
Cell Diversity
• Shape depends upon function
• ex: Nerve Shape: Elongated branching
– Function: Sends messages to and from brain
• ex: Red Blood Shape: Disc-like shape prevents
– Function: Carries O2 throughout blood
• ex: Skin Shape: Flat & broad; layers overlap
– Function: Covers and protects the body
• 1) Prokaryote: Cells without a nucleus and other
membrane-bound organelles
– First cells/life on Earth (oldest fossils = ~3.5 b.y.o)
– AKA: Bacteria
• 2) Eukaryote: Cells
with a nucleus &
membrane bound
– More complex cells
– Evolved from
– Ex: Protists, Fungi,
Plants, Animals
