Plasma or Cell Membrane

All cells are contained by a cell membrane that keeps the pieces inside.

Cell Wall

A rigid layer of polysaccharides lying outside the plasma membrane of the cells of plants, fungi, and bacteria


The fluid that fills a cell.


The cell nucleus acts like the brain of the cell. It helps control eating, movement, and reproduction.

Nulcear Membrane

A nuclear membrane, also known as the nuclear envelope. is the double lipid bilayer membrane which surrounds the genetic material and nucleus in eukaryotic cells


The nucleolus is the largest structure in the nucleus of eukaryotic cells


They are there to help the cell when it comes time to divide


Complex of macromolecules found in cells


Protein builders or the protein synthesizers of the cell

Golgi Apparatus

The Golgi apparatus gathers simple molecules and combines them to make molecules that are more complex.

Endoplasmic Reticulum

A manufacturing and packaging system


known as the powerhouses of the cell. They are organelles that act like a digestive system which takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy rich molecules for the cell.


The food producers of the cell


The purpose of the lysosome is to digest things.


They have a single membrane that contains digestive enzymes for breaking down toxic materials in the cell.


Vacuoles might store food or any variety of nutrients a cell might need to survive. They can even store waste products so the rest of the cell is protected from contamination.
