vacuoles storage space in the cell. They hold water and other nutrients. They also store waste the cell needs to get ride of. ***much large in plant cell.***
mitochondria The "power" of the cell, it stores energy.
chromosomes carries genetic material (eyecolor)
(plant cells only) Cell wall Hard, rigi shell that covers the cell membrane and protects the cell.
(plant cell only) choroplasts gives the plant its green color
biotic living things. plants, animals, microrganisms(bacteria), grass,tree
aboiotic non-living things. water, tempture, soil, rocks, air
population a group of the same living things in the same ecosystems
