Plant Cells


Chloroplasts

Chloroplasts

  • Found only in plant cells

  • Allow the plant to use sunlight to make food (photosynthesis).

  • The stroma is an area inside of the chloroplast where sugars are created. Chlorophyll uses radiant energy to create glucose.

Cell wall

Cell Wall

  • Found only in plant cells

  • Stiff, rigid, protective barrier outside of the membrane.

  • The cell wall is made of cellulose (sugars) and helps the cell keep its shape.

Vacuoles

Vacuoles

  • Plants have one large vacuole that stores food and nutrients, increases cell size, and acts like a lysosome.

  • A wilting plant has lost much of its water and the vacuoles are shrinking. Cell walls help the cell keep its structure. When vacuoles are refilled with water, the plant goes back to its original shape.

Plant cells

  • With your partner, create a double-bubble thinking map, comparing and contrasting Plant and Animal Cells.

  • Make sure it’s big, legible, and neat!
