Parts & Jobs of Plant and Animal Cells

Cell Wall a cell wall is a rigid layer of nonliving material that surrounds the cells of plants and some other organisms.
Cell Membrane a cell membrane controls what substances come into and out of a cell.
Nucleus the nucleus directs all of the cells activities, including reproduction.
Cytoplasm the cytoplasm includes a gel like fluid which many different organelles are found.
Mitochondria most of the cells energy is produced within these rod shaped organelles.
Endoplasmic reticulum this network of passageways carries materials from one part of a cell to another.
Ribosomes these small structures function as factories to produce proteins. ribosomes may be attached to the endoplasmic reticulum, or they may float in the cytoplasm.
Golgi body the Golgi body receive materials from the endoplasmic reticulum and send them to other parts of the cell. They also release materials outside of the cell.
Chloroplasts these organelles capture energy from sunlight and use it to produce food for the cell.
Vacuole most mature plant cells have one large vacuole. this sac within the cytoplasm stores water, food, waste products, and other materials.
Lysosome these small organelles contain chemicals that break down food particles and worn-out cell parts.
