Cell Organelles By: Kaylin Stinson
Plant Cells contd. • They have a rigid cell wall. (outermost covering) • Chloroplasts (green) • Go through the cycle called photosynthesis. • Usually square • 1 large central vacuole
Animal Cell contd. • Cytoskeleton (inside cell) • No chloroplasts • Can be any shape • Many small vacuoles
Similarities between Plant & Animal Cells • Do respiration • Have a nucleus • Are eukaryotes
Cell A cell is like a house. There are many things that make a house function properly just like many things make up a cell.
Nucleus The nucleus is the control center of the cell. It is like the living room in a house because both places are where things meet. They are the biggest part of both.
Cell Membrane The cell membrane regulates what goes into and out of the cell. In a house this is like the door. In both the door and cell membrane things go in and out of them.
Cell Wall The cell wall is located inside of the plant. This is what gives the organelle structure and support. In a house the walls and ceilings give it support.
Endoplasmic Reticulum Also known as the E.R. the endoplasmic reticulum is made up of passages for proteins to move throughout the cell. This is like hallways because they both provide a way to move throughout one another.
Golgi Apparatus The Golgi apparatus packages and ships proteins. This is like what a mailman does. My dad is a mailman so he is like the Golgi apparatus in my house.
Mitochondrion The mitochondrion is what produces energy within the organelle. This is like electricity that runs into the house because they both produce energy.
Vacuole The vacuole is where waste, water, and food is stored. A toilet also stores waste, water, and food.
Ribosome The ribosome produces proteins. This is like a kitchen in a house. Inside the kitchen is where food is made that contains proteins. So when you’re cooking it is like producing a bunch of proteins. Food is essential to survive just like proteins.
