|Nucleus||The nucleus contains the DNA of the cell, contains the nucleolus, and is surrounded by a membrane.|
|Nucleolus||A dense "control center" for a cell.|
|Cell Membrane||Controls what enters/leaves the cell, as well as protecting it from outer materials. This all known as semi-permeable.|
|Cytoplasm||The watery substance between the membrane and the nucleus. Most of the organelles are located here.|
|Mitochondria||Releases energy from food through cellular respiration.|
|Ribosome||The site of protein synthesis.|
|Endoplasmic Reticulum||The fluid-filled chambers that allow transport of materials.|
|Golgi Complex||Stacks of membrane sacks that process, package, and store products for release.|
|Vacuole||A nutrient and waste-filled organelle.|
|Lysosome||Contains digestive enzymes to break down food.|
|Contriole|| / ANIMALS ONLY /|
Functions in cell division.
|Chloroplasts|| / PLANTS ONLY /|
The site of photosynthesis, this is where plants get their green colour.
|Cell Wall|| / PLANTS ONLY /|
Located outside the cell membrane, this organelle give the cell more support.
