What are organelles?

Organelles are like tiny organs. They are structures with specific instructions. They're located inside the cell.

Prokaryotic Cells

Prokaryotic cells are single-celled. An example would be bacteria and archaea. These cells don't have a nucleus or a mitochondria. These can make diseases and produce insulin. First cell to evolve.

Eukaryotic Cells

A Eukaryotic Cell are cells that have a nucleus and a structure. All multi-cellular organisms are this. These cells can do anything, and you wouldn't be here without them! Made from Prokaryotic cells. Examples: Animals, plants, etc.

Body Organization

From Simplest to Complex.

Cell - Tissue - Organ - Organ System - Organism

So the Cells make tissues, which make an organ, which creates the organ system for an organism.


The mitochondria is the organelle that produces energy. They take nutrients, break them down, and make energy, the process of cellular respiration.

Contains the DNA and tells the other cells what to do. Like a control center or a parent.

Protects the Nucleus.

Cell Membrane

Encloses the whole cell and decides what comes in (oxygen, protein) and what goes out (Carbon Dioxide).

Maintains the internal pressure of the cell and keeps it from shrinking. The cytoplasm contains important molecules.

It creates the proteins the cell needs. Its attached to the Endoplasmic Membrane.

A storage place for water, salt, proteins, and carbs.

Gogli Body

It modifies, sorts, and packages proteins from ER.

Rough ER

Creates proteins for the amino acids.

Smooth ER

Produces lipids and steroids.

They break down waste, detoxify poison, and use reusable parts for cells.

Cell Walls

Only found in plant cells, these uphold the shape of plants and protects them from injury.
Big image


Converts the Sun's rays to energy for the cell (a process called photosynthesis.)
Big image

Plant Cells

Plant cells have all the cells that animals cells have, but more. They have a cell wall and Chloroplast, unlike animal cells. The Cell wall upholds the shape of the plant, the Chloroplast is needed for the photosynthesis process.

Animal Cells

Animal cells do not have a cell wall, so they're sort of in a random squiggly shape..

Cell Theory

A Tour of the Cell
Now listen to the Cell Rap! It explains the cell parts and is extremely catchy. I guarantee it'll be stuck in your head for a week and half (maybe more if you're lucky)
