Nucleus The cell structure in plant and animal cells that acts as the control centre and directs all of the cells activities
Chromosomes The parts of the cell that contain genetic information
Cell Membrane The cell structure in plant and animal cells that covers the entire cell and acts as a gatekeeper by controlling the movement of materials into and out of the cell
Cytoplasm The fluid area of the cell in which nutrients are absorbed, transported, and processed, and wastes are stored until proper disposal can be carried out.
Cell Wall The plant cell structure that protects and supports the plant cell
