The structure protects the nucleus. Nuclear Membrane
The cell structures that help a cell to function and is located in the cytoplasm is what? Organelles
What is the site for all chemical reactions that take place in the cell? Cytoplasm
This allows materials to pass in and out of the cell. Cell Membrane
The powerhouse of the cell that supplies the cell with all of the energy it needs is called what? Mitochondria
What structure makes ribosomes for the cell? Nucleolus
This cleans up the cell by digesting old cell parts or digesting entire cells that are injured. Lysosomes
