If cells can live just fine as single organisms (such as E. coli, Paramecium, or Amoeba), why did cells began to attach to each other and form these conglomerations we call multicellular organisms? We humans, for example, are an amass of trillions of cells all working together to form this entity we call a “human.” Why multicellularity happened if life can run fine with unicellular beings? Were we “expecting” multicellularity to inevitably form on this planet? How can a multicellular being survive and get maintained with so many cells “packed” together?
Investigate about multicellularity on Earth and write an essay about it. The questions provided above are to motivate you to investigate about this topic; you do not need to answer them one by one. The essay must be at least five paragraphs long, and each paragraph must contain at least five sentences (you can write more than five paragraphs and more than five sentences per paragraph if you wish to do so). The content of your essay must be written entirely in your OWN words. Use in-text citations in parenthesis, APA style, if you paraphrase information from other authors. Paraphrasing is not copy-pasting or copying and changing a few words from other authors’ writings – it is writing it in your OWN words to explain the authors’ writings. Only when necessary, you can quote, but these quotes do not count towards the last tally of the number of paragraphs and sentences required from your OWN writing. You must at least consult three references to investigate about this topic and must list these three references at the end of your essay (use APA style).
