If you look carefully at the back of your hand you can see the hairs and the little lines in your skin.  If you use a magnifying glass you can see it better.  The hairs look thicker.  If you use a microscope, which is really a super-powerful magnifying glass, you will see that each hair is made of many, many little pieces.  These tiny pieces are called cells.
