(plant cells only) Captures energy from sunlight and uses it to produce food for the cell. Gives plants their green color.
Cell's control center. It directs all of the cell's actions. It also has a membrane.
(animal cells) Small round structures that contain chemicals that break down large food particles into smaller ones. Breaks down old cell parts and releases the substances so they can be used again.
*Clean-up Crew

(muscle cells and other active cells have large numbers of mitochondria)
Strands in the nuclelous that contain genetic material.
Attached to the endoplasmic riticulum or float around freely in the cytoplasm. Makes proteins.
Cell Membrane
All cells have cell membranes. Forms the ouside boundary that seperates the cell from it's environment. It controls what comes in/out of a cell.
Golgi bodies
Recieve proteins and other material from the endoplasmic riticulam and sends them to other parts of the cell. Also releases materials outside the cell.
Tiny cell structures, each having different functions.
Region between the cell membrane and the nucleus. This fluid is always moving.
(clear, thick, gel-like fluid)
