What is a Plant? Nearly all plants are autotrophs, meaning that they produce their own food. Photosynthesis is food making process for plants. Tissues are groups of similar cells that perform a specific function in an organism. No matter how large or small a plant is, its cells is organised into tissues. Plants are made up of Eukaryotes, but unlike most eukaryote cells, plant's cells are enclosed by a cell wall plant wall cells are made of cellulose, a material that makes the walls rigid. FUN FACT Cell walls are what make apples and carotes crunchy! Chloroplasts, which look somthing like green jelly beans, are the structures in which food is made. A Vacuole is a large storage sac than can expand and shrink like a balloon. The Vacuole stores many substances including water, wates, and food.
