Mr. David's Cell Organelles - edit these cards and create your own set...include analogies we have discussed in class or create your own!

cell membrane

thin, flexible barrier around a cell; regulates what enters and leaves the cell. All cells have cell membranes

cell wall

strong supporting layer around the cell membrane in plants, algae, and some bacteria


organelle found in cells of plants and some other organisms that captures the energy from sunlight and converts it into chemical energy. Not found in animal cells.


material inside the cell membrane --not including the nucleus

Endoplasmic reticulum

"Transport system" of the cell - a system of membranes and passageways throughout the cytoplasm that carries proteins and other materials to all parts of the cell

Golgi Body

stack of membranes in the cell that modifies, sorts, and packages proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum


"Trash men" of the cell, an organelle filled with enyzmes need to break down certain materials in the cells


cell organelle that converts the chemical energy stored in foods into compounds that are more convenient for the cell to use


small particles in the cell on which proteins are assembled; made of RNA and proteins

Endoplasmic Reticulum (Rough)

portion of the ER involved in the synthesis of proteins

Endoplasmic Reticulum (Smooth)

contains collections of enzymes that perform specialized tasks, including the synthesis of membrane lipids, and the detoxification of drugs


cell organelle that stores materials such as waters, salts, proteins, and carboydrates


The 'Control Center' of the cell. Directs the cell's functions and activities, as well as containing the genetic information (DNA)
