Organisms are made of cells that have similar structural characteristics.


Outline the historical development of the cell theory, in particular, the
contributions of Robert Hooke and Robert Brown.
Describe evidence to support the cell theory.
Discuss the significance of technological advances to developments in the cell
theory.
Identify cell organelles seen with current light and electron microscopes.
Describe the relationship between the structure of cell organelles and their
function.
Use available evidence to assess the impact of technology, including the
development of the microscope on the development of the cell theory.
Perform a first-hand investigation to gather first-hand information using a light
microscope to observe cells in plants and animals and identify nucleus, cytoplasm,
cell wall, chloroplast and vacuoles.
Process information from secondary sources to analyse electron micrographs of
cells and identify mitochondria, chloroplasts, Golgi bodies, lysosomes,
endoplasmic reticulum, ribosomes, nucleus, nucleolus and cell membranes.
Membranes around cells provide separation from and links with the external
environment.
Identify the major groups of substances found in living cells and their uses in cell
activities.
