Mitochondria Breaks down food, (glucose), to release energy for the cell
Vacuole Stores food and waste for the cell.
Chloroplast Use chlorophyll to capture sun's energy to make molecules of sugar-food, (glucose)
cytoplasm Jelly like substance in the cell that the organelles float in
Lysosome Breaks apart damaged material in the cell and recycles it
Nucleoulus Produce ribosomes
Golgi Bodies Package Proteins and bring them where needed
Photosynthesis When a cell captures the sun's energy with chlorophyll, and uses the energy to make glucose from water and Carbon Dioxide.
