Parts of a Cell

Cell Wall and Memebrane

The cell wall is the outer supportive layer of the cell. It's a rigid structure that helps keep all the inside parts of the cell intact and together. The membrane is the protective layer that keeps the cell closed and safe.


The nucleus is like the brain of the cell. It's the center and it controls the cell and holds the DNA of its cell it is in.


The ribosome is where all the amino acids are kept safe and hooked together to make proteins.

Endoplasmic Riticulum

The endoplasmic riticulum is the organelle that makes packages for proteins for Golgi complex, breaks down drugs and other substances, and makes lipids.


The mitochondria breaks down food molecules to make ATP.


The chloroplast takes sun light energy and uses it to make and provide food.

Golgi Complex

The golgi complex is where proteins and other materials are processed and transported out of the cell.


The vacuole is where the water and other materials are placed in the cell.


The lysosome is the organelle that breaks down and absorbs food particles, wastes, cell parts, and foreign invaders.


Tissue is a group of cells who do the similar function and work together to do that common function.

Cells to Organs, Organs to Organ System, Organ Systems to Organism

Cells must first become tissue then they become and organ by doing their common function. Once they become an organ they become part of a bigger group like the heart in the cardio vascular system the different organs do different things so that when they work together they will do a common goal. Once there are multiple organ systems that make up an organsim and when they all work together they make life.

Differences Between Animal and Plant Cells

A plant cell is always a boxy shape and the animal cell can be any kind of shape. The plant cell has a cell wall, chloroplast, and a central vacuole.
