      Hey Leila!

      Cells are the tiny building blocks of our bodies – we are all made up of millions and millions of cells, and they are all so different! Nerve cells are different from heart cells and heart cells are very different from skin cells! They all are very specialised at doing different jobs, depending on where they are in the body, and they are told to specialise in different ways by our DNA.

      Cells are great! Definitely learn as much as you can about them 🙂
