How are plant cells and animal cells different?

    Plant and animal cells have almost all of the most important cell structures in common, for example, they both have a nucleus that contains DNA.  But in two ways they are very different – plant cells have chloroplasts and animal cells don’t.  This is what give leaves their green color and it is how plant acquire energy from the sun – through photosynthesis.  Another major difference is that although all cells have a cell membrane (the membrance allows molecules to pass into and out of the cell and gives the cell shape), plant cells have a cell wall that surrounds the entire cell – including the membrance.  This is a protective covering and allows the plant to stand up even during rain or snow.
