The original cell theory includes the following components: all living things are composed of cells; cells are the smallest unit (structure) of living things that can perform the processes (functions) necessary for life; and living cells come only from other living cells. (Although it is appropriate for students at this level to understand the three points of the original cell theory, an exploration of the revised cell theory should be reserved for high school Biology.)
