P&A Cells

Parts & Jobs of Plant & Animal Cells

Cell Wall A rigid layer of nonliving material that surrounds the cells of plants and some other organisms. A cell wall helps protect and support the cell.
Cell Membrane The cell membrane controls what substances come into and out of the cell. Example: Your hand. It is basically a protective screen for cells.
Nucleus The nucleus controls all the cells. Kind of like a control center. It is as important to a cell as the brain is to us.
Cytoplasm The cytoplasm is the region between the cell membrane and the nucleus. It's a gel-like fluid.
Mitochondria The mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cell. They convert energy into food molecules.
Endoplasmic Reticulum The endoplasmic reticulum carries proteins and other materials from one part of the cell to the other.
Ribosomes Ribosomes float in the cytoplasm. They produce proteins.
Golgi Body Golgi Bodies are the mail room of a cell. They receive proteins and other materials from the endoplasmic reticulum and sends them to other parts of the cell.
Chloroplasts Chloroplasts take energy from the sun and use it to produce food for the cell. They are found in the cytoplasm.
Vacuole Vacuoles are found in the cytoplasm. They are like the storage areas for the cells.
Lysosomes Lysosomes are small, round structures that contain chemicals that break down certain materials in the cell.
