  • References
basic information
Basic Information
  • (from the Greek meaning truly nuclear)
  • These cells have a nucleus
  • 10 times greater in size than Prokaryotic Cells
  • comprise all of the life kingdoms except Monera (Protista, Plantae, Fungi and Animalia)
  • contain many internal membrane-bound structures called organelles
  • Plasma Membrane is present
  • Two Types of Cells
    • Animal
    • Plant
description of cell
Description of Cell
  • Animal Cell
    • Contains a number of organelles to help with its function
    • Found in Humans and Animals
    • Centrioles are present
      • Not found in Plant Cells
description of cell cont
Description of Cell (cont.)
  • Plant Cell
    • Functions similar to an Animal Cell
      • Most of the Organelles are present
    • 3 unique structures
      • Plastids
      • Cell Walls
      • Vacuoles
meet the organelles and their functions
Meet the Organelles… and their Functions

Plasma Membrane



Surrounded by a double membrane with a series of folds called cristae. Functions in energy production through metabolism. Contains its own DNA

Double membrane surrounding the chromosomes and the nucleolus. Pores allow specific communication with the cytoplasm. The nucleolus is a site for synthesis of RNA making up the ribosome

A lipid/protein/carbohydrate complex, providing a barrier and containing transport and signaling systems.

Meet the Organelles (cont.)

Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum

Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum


Contains stacked thylakoid membranes. Responsible for photosynthesis, Contains DNA similar to Mitochondria

A network of interconnected membranes forming channels within the cell. Covered with ribosomes (causing the "rough" appearance)

A network of interconnected membranes forming channels within the cell. A site for synthesis and metabolism of lipids

meet the organelles cont1
Meet the Organelles (cont.)



A membrane bound organelle that is responsible for degrading proteins and membranes in the cell, and also helps degrade materials ingested by the cell.

Membrane surrounded "bags" that contain water and storage materials in plants.

Golgi Apparatus

A series of stacked membranes. Vesicles (small membrane surrounded bags) carry materials from the RER to the Golgi apparatus. Vesicles move between the stacks while the proteins are "processed" to a mature form. Vesicles then carry newly formed membrane and secreted proteins to their final destinations


Produce and degrade hydrogen peroxide, a toxic compound that can be produced during metabolism.

today s activity
Today’s Activity…
  • Virtual Lab and Color Worksheet
  • Go to the website

  • Part A:Use cell models found on the website to define the vocabulary words from the presentation. On reverse side of the paper, draw a picture of both a plant and animal cells for your notes. Make sure to distinguish the differences between the two!
today s activity cont
Today’s Activity (cont.)
  • Part B: Complete the “Eukaryotic Cell” color sheet.
  • Use map pencils or crayon (no markers or pens)
  • Match the organelle found in the cell with the correct name.
  • Both assignments are due at the end of the class period.
