Cells For Fifth Grade! - Quiz

Whether you’re a fifth-grade student scouring through the internet for tips on your studies, or a parent trying to help your child come to grips with the biological topic of cells, this quiz should do the trick. Let’s see how much you know about cells! Good luck!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What part of the cell acts like its brain?

    • A.

      The Nucleus

    • B.

      The Mitochondria

    • C.

      Chloroplast

    • D.

      Cell Wall

    Correct Answer
    A. The Nucleus
    Explanation
    The nucleus acts like the brain of the cell because it contains the cell's genetic material, DNA, which controls the cell's activities and functions. It regulates the cell's growth, reproduction, and metabolism. Like a brain, the nucleus is responsible for coordinating and controlling the various processes within the cell, making it the central control center. The other options, such as the mitochondria, chloroplast, and cell wall, have important roles in the cell but do not function as the brain-like the nucleus does.

    What type of cell was looked at by Robert Hooke?

    • A.

      Skin Cells

    • B.

      Blood Cells

    • C.

      A Cork Cell

    • D.

      An Animal Cell

    Correct Answer
    C. A Cork Cell
    Explanation
    Robert Hooke looked at a cork cell. This is evident from his famous observation of cork under a microscope, where he noticed small compartments that he called "cells." This discovery led to the development of the cell theory and our understanding of cells as the basic building blocks of life.

    Which of these cell parts will you not find on an animal cell?

    • A.

      Nucleus

    • B.

      Cell Membrane

    • C.

      Cytoplasm

    • D.

      Cell Wall

    Correct Answer
    D. Cell Wall
    Explanation
    The cell wall is a rigid structure that provides support and protection to plant cells. Animal cells do not have a cell wall, instead they have a flexible cell membrane that controls the movement of substances in and out of the cell. Therefore, you will not find a cell wall on an animal cell.

    The movement of water in and out of cells is called what?

    • A.

      Mitochondria

    • B.

      Waterfalling

    • C.

      Osmosis

    • D.

      Photosynthesis

    Correct Answer
    C. Osmosis
    Explanation
    Osmosis is the process by which water molecules move in and out of cells. It occurs through a semipermeable membrane, such as the cell membrane, in response to the concentration gradient of solutes. Water moves from an area of lower solute concentration to an area of higher solute concentration, in order to equalize the concentration on both sides of the membrane. This movement of water is essential for maintaining cell hydration and regulating cell volume.

    All cells look and act the same.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "All cells look and act the same" is false. Cells in living organisms have different structures and functions depending on their type and location in the body. For example, nerve cells transmit electrical signals, muscle cells contract to produce movement, and red blood cells carry oxygen. Additionally, cells can have different sizes, shapes, and specialized organelles to perform specific tasks. Therefore, cells do not look and act the same.
