2 Cells have a job! Your cells have many jobs to do. The main job of the cell is to make proteins, which will be used in all of your body’s major activities.Your cells could not do this without the help of it’s organelles.Organelles are small structures within the cells that carry out specific functions.Let’s talk about all of the different organelles of the cell!
3 Cell Wall Only in plants and some bacteria Rigid structure on outside of cell made up of celluloseProvides protection, support, and shape to cellNOT in animal cells! (we have a cytoskeleton inside our cells instead that provides our cells with a shape)
4 Plant CellDon’t Draw…Notice the location of the cell wall and the cell membrane inside it.
5 Cell Membrane In plants (inside cell wall) and animals (outer layer) Controls what comes in and out of cellHelps provide shape and protection of cell
6 Animal cellDon’t Draw… Notice the location of the cell membrane. Is there a cell wall?NO!!
7 NucleusThe nucleus is the cell’s control center, directing all of the cell’s activities.Nuclear Envelope: Protects Nucleus, has pores to control what comes in/out of nucleusChromatin: Genetic material of cell (DNA), provides instructions to cells to carry out specific functionsNucleolus: makes the ribosomes (which make the proteins)
8 Cytoplasm Gel-like fluid within cell Contains most of cells major organelles
9 MitochondrionMitochondria are known as the “powerhouses” of the cell because they convert energy in food molecules to energy the cell can use to carry out its functions.
10 Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) The endoplasmic reticulum is similar to the system of hallways in a building. Proteins and other materials move throughout the cell by way of the ER. The spots on this organelle are ribosomes, which produce proteins.The job of the ER is to modify (change) the proteins.
11 Ribosomes Located on the ER and throughout the cytoplasm Site where proteins are made
12 Golgi BodyReceive proteins and other newly formed materials from the endoplasmic reticulum, package them, and distribute them to other parts of the cell or out of the cell.
13 Lysosomes Small round stuctures Clean up crew of cell Contains chemicals to break down old cell organelles and release them to be used again
14 Vacuoles Storage area for cells Store food, waste, and other materials ANIMAL CELLStorage area for cellsStore food, waste, and other materialsSome animal cells have small storage vacuolesOnly plant cells have one large vacuole called a “central vacuole”PLANT CELLNotice the size difference in the vacuoles between the 2 cells
15 Chloroplasts Only in plant cells Green organelles in cytoplasm Capture energy from sun to make food for plants (photosynthesis)Make the leaves green
16 Cells are specializedCells have different structures (like shape) to perform a variety of functionsNot all cells look the same or do the same taskNerve cells have long extensions to carry signals throughout body. Can you see the nucleus?Red blood cells are flat so they can carry oxygen through blood vessels. White blood cells are more round and hold chemicals to fight infections.
17 Let’s Review! No! Provide energy to the cell. Do animal cells have cell walls?What is the function of the mitochondria?No!Provide energy to the cell.
18 Let’s Review! In the nucleus Plant cells Where is the cells DNA located?What types of cells have chloroplasts?In the nucleusPlant cells
19 Let’s Review! It’s the site where proteins are made Proteins What is the main goal of the cell? (What is the cell producing?)What is the function of the ribosomes?It’s the site where proteins are madeProteins
