Cells can't be cells without atoms. Atoms are the building blocks of things we see around us. Except atoms are NOT living things. Cells are the building blocks of living things. There are trillions of cells in our body. There are over 200 different kinds of cells.(blood,skin,muscle,nerve, aka) Our cells supports our body.
Cells can be considered the building blocks of life because every living thing is made up of cells or even a single cell.
