Unit 7 – Cells and Life

The essential question for Unit 7 is “How are cells a reflection of life?”

“Life is diverse. The world in which we live can be divided into two very basic parts, living and non-living. Although considerable variation exists, every living thing on Earth is composed of cells. From the tiniest blade of grass to the tallest tree, from the algae that turns the pond green to the fisherman standing on its banks, cells are the building blocks in which the chemistry of life occurs.”
