7 Cell membraneThe cell membrane is a thin, flexible covering that surrounds the cell. It allows the cell to change shape and controls what goes into and out of the cell.What does the cell membrane resemble in the Cell Country?
8 Cell Membrane=The harbors or international airports
9 CytoplasmThe jelly-like area between the nucleus and the cell membrane is called the cytoplasm. It helps organelles move throughout the cell.What does the cytoplasm resemble in the Cell Country?
11 NucleusThe nucleus is a large, round/oval structure usually located near the center of the cell. It is the control center for all the activities of the cell.What does the nucleus resemble in the Cell Country?
13 Endoplasmic Reticulum The endoplasmic reticulum consists of a network of tube-like passageways that proteins made by the ribosomes are transported through.What does the endoplasmic reticulum resemble in the Cell Country?
15 RibosomesThe ribosomes are small grain-like bodies made mostly of RNA and are produced in the nucleus. The ribosomes make or construct proteins for the cell.What does the ribosome resemble in the Cell Country?
17 Golgi BodyThe Golgi Bodies (also known as Golgi Apparatus or Golgi Complex) are responsible for modifying, packaging and transporting molecules to other locations inside the cell or outside the cell.What does the Golgi Complex resemble in the Cell Country?
19 MitochondriaThe mitochondria are tiny bean-shaped structures in the cytoplasm with a smooth outer membrane, and a greatly folded inner membrane. They supply the energy for the cell by changing sugars into “cell energy”.What does the mitochondria resemble in the Cell Country?
21 ChloroplastThe chloroplast is an oval, green structure found in the cytoplasm. It contains chlorophyll. It captures the sun’s light energy and uses it to produce sugars in a process called photosynthesis.What does the chloroplast resemble in the Cell Country?
25 LysosomeThe lysosome is a small, round structure responsible for digesting large food particles or worn-out cell parts to be reused or exported from the cell.What does the lysosome resemble in the Cell Country?
26 Lysosomes=Waste Management or recycling centers
