It’s usually pretty easy to tell if an organism is an animal or a plant at a single glance. Interestingly enough, plant and animal cells are also easy to tell apart. Readers will learn the organelles—cell parts—that are particular to animal or plant cells. They will be exposed to the wide variety of plant and animal cells, as well as the characteristics that makes specialized cells so perfectly suited to their functions. Special attention is paid to photosynthesis and cellular respiration, including the complementary nature of the two processes.
