-Contractile Vacuole: This organelle's job is to pump put extra water so that the amoeba does not burst
-Food Vacuole: This organelle digests and takes out food that is consumed and obtains its nutrients from this process.
-Ectoplasm: This is the clear gel like substance near the cell membrane
-Endoplasm: This is the dark gel like substance in the interior of the amoeba.
-Membrane: This is the flexible "spine" that allows the amoeba to change shape.
-Pseudopod: This organelle allows locomotion for the amoeba, and it acts as a "false foot"
Parts of Euglena
-Contractile Vacuole: This organelle excess waste and due to the fact of osmosis, if it didn't do this, it would explode
-Eyespot: This organelle helps the organelle detect light for photosynthesis
-Chloroplast: This organelle captures the sun's rays and converts it into sugar (photosynthesis)
-Cytoplasm: This is the gel like fluid that fills the Euglena
-Flagellum: This organelle loco motes the Euglena
Parts of Paramecium
-Contractile Vacuole: Takes out waste that is harmful
-Pellicle: Outer membrane of Paramecium
-Mouth Pore: The Organelle that digests the food
-Trichocyst: String like projectiles
-Ectoplasm, Endoplasm: The gel like fluid in the paramecium
