Cell Organelles

Golgi Body Packages and exports proteins.
Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) Carries materials in the cell and helps make proteins. This organelle can be rough (with ribosomes) or smooth (without ribosomes).
Mitochondria Breaks down sugar molecules to release energy. This is where cellular respiration occurs.
Ribosome Synthesizes proteins.
Lysosome Found mainly in animal cells, this organelle breaks down larger food molecules into small ones and digests old cell parts.
Chloroplast Makes food for plant cells through the process of photosynthesis.
Centriole Found only in an animal cell, this organelle separates chromosome pairs during mitosis.
Cillia or Flagella Found only in animal, bacterial, and protozoan cells, these organelles allow the cell to move around.
Membrane Surrounds both the outside of the cell and the nucleus. It controls the movement into and out of the cell/nucleus. It also provides protection and support for the cell.
Cell Wall Provides protection and support for plant, but not animal cells. It allows water, oxygen,a nd carbon dioxide to move into and out of a cell.
Vacuole Stores and/or transports food, water, and waste in animal cells. Only a single, large one exists in the plant cell and stores large amounts of food.
Nucleus Controls cell activity and houses DNA.
Nucleolue Makes ribosomes.
Cytoplasm Supports and protects cell organelles.
