While animals and plants both need food for energy, they feed in different ways. This is just one way the two are both similar and different. In this class, students will be looking at the structures of animal and plant cells and the similarities and differences between them before moving on to how to differentiate between different types of cells. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 9 but is an important topic to have a grasp on before moving to KS4.
