nucleus both plant and animal large oval controls cell actions president
cell wall plant not animal outer layer rigid strong stiff made of cellulose support protection allows water oxygen and carbon dioxide in and out of cell

vacuole plant few large animal small fluid filled sacs that store food water or waste. plants need to store large amounts of food storage
endoplasmic reticulum both plant and animal network of tubes or membranes that carry materials throughout the cell. transportation
ribosomes both plant and animal small bodies either by themselves or attached to the endoplasmic reticulum. produces proteins assembly line
lysosome plant uncommon animal common small round with a membrane they break down larger food into smaller food and digest old cell parts custodian
mitochondria both plant and animal bean shaped with inner membranes they break down sugar molecules into energy furnace
cytoplasm both plant and animal clear thick jelly like material found inside the cell membrane and supports+ protects the cells organelles
chromatin both plant and animal thread like strands found in the nucleus that carry genetic material
golgi bodies both pant and animal looks like a stack of pancakes and transport proteins out of the cell from the endoplasmic reticulum
