Cell Wall (only plants)

A strong, stiff part which is made of cellulose (a chain of sugars) that helps to protect and support the plant so it can grow tall


A clear, thick jelly-like substance that lets the cell's parts float and move within; contains all the important cell parts (organelles)

Cell Membrane

The outer covering of the animal cell/second layer of plant cell that provides protection and support for a cell and also controls the movement and food/water/waste in and out of the cell


Like storage tanks - large, round water-filled sac floating in the cytoplasm that holds/stores food and other materials needed by the cell and also stores waste until it exits the cell membrane.
