Parts of Cells

cell membrane around the outside of cell; holds cell together, lets somethings in and keeps other things out
cytoplasm gel-like fluid inside the cell; holds the cell's organelles
nucleus center of the cell; control centerl: holds information to help the cell run and make new cells (ex. DNA)
nuclear membrane surrounds the nucleus; protects the nucleus
vacuoles clear fluid-filled sacks; stores materials and waste
mitochondria organelle--rod shaped (looks like the bottom of a shoe); uses oxygen to get the energy from food
endoplasmic reticulum organelle (long and thin, passageway like a maze); makes products needed by the cell, makes "deliveries" to other cell parts
ribosomes organelles (tiny and round, grain-like), sometimes attached to the endoplasmic reticulum; makes products needed by the cell
golgi bodies organelles--like stacks of hollow pancakes; "packages" products for delivery
chromosomes threadlike structures found in the nucleus; contains the genes and DNA that determine what a cell and organism does and looks like
lysosome clear sack; breaks down food molecules and waste
cell wall only in plants; outer barrier of the cell, contains cellulose (plant fiber); provides extra support and shape
chloroplasts only in plants; organelle (oval and green), contains chlorophyll (green pigment); chlorophyll captures sunlight, carry out photosynthesis to make food
