Cell Theory 1.All living things are made of cells. 2.Cells are the basic unit of structure and function in living things. 3.All cells come only from other living cells.
An organelle is a membrane- bound structure that carries out specific activities for the cell. It means “little organ.”
You will need to know the following organelles and their function: Cell Membrane Nucleus Cytoplasm Mitochondria Golgi apparatus Ribosomes Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum Cell Wall Chloroplast Vacuole Lysosome
Cell Wall (Plant Cell Only) Outer layer of the plant cell Protects and supports the cell
School Equivalent of Cell Wall Outer walls of school
Cell Membrane Separates the cell from the rest of its environment. Controls the passage of materials in and out of the cell. GATE KEEPER
