Cell Membrane (P/A)
thin strcuture, surrounds cells
-protects what's inside
-helps support cell
-regulates flow of material into/out of cell
4
Cell Wall (P)
only plant has it
-stiff, supports cell
-made up of cellulose


(example: bark of a tree, stem of a plant)
3
Nucleus (P/A)
governs the cells
-control center where DNA, RNA is stored
2

(library, brain)
