Plant & Animal Cells

Parts and jobs of plant and animal cells

Organelles Organelles are smaller structures inside a cell. Organelles carry out specific functions inside the cell.
Cell Wall The cell wall is a rigid layer of non-living materials that surrounds the cell of plants and some other organisms. A plant's cell wall helps protect and support the cell.
Cell Membrane The cell membrane controls what substances come into and out of the cell. The cell membrane is another barrier along with the cell wall.
Cell nucleus The cell nucleus acts as the brain of the cell. It is the control center of the cell and directs all of the cell's activities.
Cytoplasm The cytoplasm is the region between the cell membrane and the nucleus. It is like a clear, thick gel-like fluid.
Mitochondria Mitochondria are the power houses of the cell because they convert energy from food molecules to energy that the cell can use to carry out it's functions.
Endoplasmic Reticulum Endoplasmic reticulum's passageways carry protein and other materials from one part of the cell to another.
Ribosomes Ribosomes are attached to some surfaces of endoplasmic reticulum's or float around in the cytoplasm. Ribosomes factories produce proteins.
Golgi Body The Golgi body receives proteins and other newly formed materials from the endoplasmic reticulum, package them, and distribute them to other parts of the cell.
Chloroplast Chloroplasts can be found only in plant cell's cytoplasm. Chloroplasts capture energy from the sun and use it to produce food for the cell.
Vacuole Vacuoles are found in the cytoplasm and are the storage units of the cell.
Lysosomes Lysosomes are small, round, structures containing chemicals that break down certain materials in the cell.
Name two different ways that bacterial cells are different than plant and animal cells. Bacterial cells do not have a nucleus and are smaller than plant and animal cells.
