A game to help remember the different scientists and different parts of the cell theory.

What is the Cell Theory?It said that cells are the basic function and structure of all living things and that all cells come from pre-existing cells.
What were the exceptions to the Cell Theory?1.Viruses aren't made of cells and reproduce in a host cell. 2.Chloroplasts reproduce independently of the cell and have their own genetic material
Who was Anton Von Leeuwonhoek?He invented the first single-lens microscope.
Who was Robert Hooke?He was the person that named the cell and studied cork in order to reach his decision.
Who was Robert Brown?He was someone who stated that almost all cells contain a nucleus.

What do leucoplasts do?They store starches in plant cells.
What do centrioles do?They are important in cell division of animal cells.
What do chloroplasts do?They are where photosynthesis take place in a plant cell.
What does the cell membrane do?It regulates what goes in and out of the cell.
