science cell structure

Cell Membrane One function is to keep the cell and it"s environment separate. ( The cell membrane is the boundary layer between a cell and it's environment.) Another function of a cell membrane is to allow things in or out the cell. Plant and Animal
Cytoplasm Is to suspend strucructures (hold them up) and/or move structures and material throughout the cell by Cytoplasmic Streaming Plant and Animal
Nucleus Is to direct all of the activities of the cell. (it is located in the center of the cell and has Chromosomes on it.) ( don't confuse it with the nucleus of an atom.) Organelles
Mitochondrion Is to break down "cell food" to release energy for use in the cells. (It's nickname is "power house" of the cell. ( Mitochondria is plural. Organelles
Endoplasmic Reticulum ( ER ) Is to be a path to help move things from the nucleusto the edges of the cell. It is like a highway in the cell's. ( through the cytoplasm) Organelles
Ribosome Is to make proteins. ( It is found in the ER or floating in the cytoplasm) Organelles
Golgi Bodies Is to package proteins and other things cells make ) and begin the process of moving proteins ( and other thing cells make ) out of the cell. Organelles
Vacuole Is to store thing in the cell. ( they are like sacs that different stuff is packaged into. ) Vacuoles are made by the Golgi Bodies. Organelles
Lysosome Is to " digest " waste and worn out cell parts. ( The digested bits are used to make new things in the cell. Lysosomes are recyclers.) Organelles
Cell Wall ( The Cell wallis just outside of the cell membrane.) It's function is to protect and support the cell. Plant
Chloroplast Is to change light energy into chemical energy, in the form of sugar or starch. Chloroplasts always have a color and most of them are green. Organelles
