Types of cell
Plants and animals have many different types of cell. It is helpful for
scientists to be able to sort them into groups to study them. In this
activity you will be sorting the cells into groups by deciding on their
important features.

The diagrams above show six different types of cell.
Obtaining evidence
1 Divide the six cell types above into two major groups by writing their
letter in the major group circles in the diagram on the next page.
2 Write down the feature you chose to sort the cell types into two major
groups in the space provided on the left. Write down the feature as a
question, for example, ‘Does the cell have a nucleus (yes or no)?’
3 Divide the cell types in each major group into two minor groups by
writing their letter in the minor group circles.
4 Write down the features you chose to sort each of the major groups
into minor groups.

Considering the evidence
1 Which of these three features do you think is the most important?
2 Why do you think this feature is most important?
Evaluating
1 Did everyone in the class use the same features to sort the cells?
2 Did all the class agree on which is the most important feature?
3 Why is it important that scientists agree which features to use and
which are the most important?
