How does form fit function of some of the different parts?
Red Blood Cell
• Small and flexible to fit through tiny
tubes.
• NO nucleus to make more room for
more oxygen
Nerve Cell
Long and branching arms to send
messages quickly from any part of the
body to the brain.
Muscle Cell
• Long and skinny to contract and extend for
movement.
• Lots of nuclei to help large cell communicate.
• Lots of mitochondria because cells need lots of
energy.
White Blood Cell
Can change shape to fit between tissues to
find and fight infections.
Leaf Cell
Has chloroplasts to change light energy
into food (photosynthesis).
Root Cell
• Many large vacuoles to soak up and
store water for the plant.
• NO chloroplasts because there is no
light for photosynthesis.
