parts of a cell

Nucleus Controls the cell.
Nucleolus - Makes ribosomes, maybe more than one in a cell, found in the nucleus.
Chromosomes - Determines what traits a living thing will have, passes information from parent to offspring.
Cell Membrane - Gives the cell shape, holds the cytoplasm, and controls what moves into and out of the cell.
Cytoplasm - Jellylike material (cytosol and organelles), most of the cell's chemical reactions take place there, and made up of mostly water and some chemicals.
Vacuoles - Liquid-filled, may store food, water, minerals, or wastes.
Mitochondria Produce energy when food is broken down, often called the "powerhouse of the cell".
Ribosomes - Where proteins are made, and often connected to the endoplasmic reticulum.
Endoplasmic Reticulum The "transportation system" in the cell, connects the nuclear membrane with the cell membrane. Used in detoxification of the cell. "ER"
Cell Wall Found only in plant cells. Forms a thick outer covering outside the cell membrane, gives the plant support and shape.
