Organelles Quiz

Cell Membrane

Thin covering around the celll that controls what enters and leaves the cell
-maintains cell fluidity and provides shape and protection

Cytoplasm

-Jelly like fluid
-holds organelles

Nucleus

Role: contains genetic information of the cell (DNA) directs all cell activites
- Surrounded by a double membrane called the NUCLEAR ENVELOPE

Ribosomes

Tiny spherical bodies that manufactures proteins for the cell
found in cytoplasm and on rough ER

Mitochondria

oval shaped organelle that converts food to energy

Chloroplasts

Role: Site of photosynthesis
*only found in plant cells

Cell Wall

Thick and firm outer boundray that provides- Protection/ support/ maintain shape
- made of cellulose
* only found in plant cells

Endoplasmic Reticulum

Role: Transports materials in membranous tubules
*ROUGH ER- ribosomes attached

Vacuole

Air bubble looking sacs that store food , water and waste and chemicals.
plant cells have a bigger one than animal cells

DNA

Found inside chromosomes in the nucleus; contains the instructions for growth reproduction and development of the cell

Organelles

Tiny structures located inside the cell that perform necessaray functions for the cell

Chromosomes

Found in the nucleus and is Made of DNA and is rod shaped

Mitochondria

Golgi Body

Animal Cell

Plant Cell

Chloroplast

Endoplasmic Reticulum

What is the largest organelle in a plant

chromosomes

contain genetic material such as DNA

DNA

the genetic material in chromosomes

ribosomes

place where proteins are made

nucleus

Where a substance would be if it passed through the cell wall or cell membrane and then passed thru the cytoplasm

vacuoles

nicknamed a freezer because it stores alot of things for the cell

plant

Cell theory basically states

All living things are made of cells

chlorophyll

What is the green colored substance that makes chlorplasts look green.

DNA

Found in the nucleus and is wrapped around the chromosomes and provides the instructions for the growth of all living things.

mitochondria

organelles that provide energy for the cell

Organelles

found inside the cell and carry out specific life processes

plant cell

Animal cells

What type of cell would you fine centrioles

Chromosomes

Where is DNA found inside a cell

Protein synthesis

process of making proteins

chlorphyll

The pigment that traps the suns energy to make a plants food

lysosomes

The organelle that breaks down and recycles worn out cells
