Mrs. Holcombe's Pre A.P. seventh grade science class
Monrovia Middle School from Madison County School System
The cell theory is one of the basic principles of biology. The discovery of the cell was not possible until the invention of the microscope. Credit for the formation of this theory is given to Theodor Schwann, Matthias Schleiden and Rudolph Virchow. The cell theory states the following:1) All living things are made of cells, 2) cells are the basic units of all living things and 3) all cells come from existing cells. The students used iPads and Garage Band to create a rap song about the cell theory.
