Organelle Identification H3

 

 

Is the cell on the left a plant cell or an animal cell?  How can you tell?

Label the cells, and describe the function of each organelle.

 

Cell Organelles

Complete the following table by writing the name of the cell part or organelle in the right hand column that matches the structure/function in the left hand column. A cell part may be used more than once.

Organelles are listed to the right.

Structure/Function

 

Stores material within the cell

 

Closely stacked, flattened sacs where photosynthesis takes place

 

The sites of protein synthesis

 

Jelly-like substance in the cell

 

Organelle that manages or controls all the cell functions in a eukaryotic cell

 

Digests excess or worn-out cell parts, food particles and invading viruses or bacteria

 

Firm, protective structure that gives the cell its shape in plants, fungi, most bacteria and some protists

 

Produces a usable form of energy for the cell

 

Packages proteins for transport out of the cell

 

The membrane surrounding the cell

 

Provides support for the cell
