3 Main Parts to a Cell

Author: Rebecca Lewis

Students will be able to define three basic parts to a cell: cell membrane, nucleus, and cytoplasm. Students will be able tod discuss structure and distinguish the functions of each cell part.

Any science textbook will tell you that a cell is the basic unit of life. But what does that mean?  All living things are composed of tiny, tiny structures called cells. In order to be classified as a living thing, an object must have cells.  Cells can be simplex or complicated. In this lesson we will learn the three basic parts of all cells. Cells have something called a cell membrane, a nucleus, and cytoplasm. In further lessons we will be learning that cells have even more complicated parts.
