Plant Cell by Shawn Livingston
This is the vacuole. It stores nutrients and the cells waste.
Cell membrane- is selectively permeable. Controls substances going in and out of the cell. It also protects the cell. On iTunes at On Amazon at Buy the video at http://www.teacherspayt...

Cell Wall- This organelle is only found in plant cells. provides the cell with protection and support. It also prevents over-expansion when water enters the cell.
Cytoplasm- is a jelly like substance that keeps the organelles and cell parts in place inside the cell.
Nucleolus- made up of proteins and RNA. It's main function is to rewrite RNA and combine it with proteins, this forms incomplete ribosomes.
Nucleus- The control center of the cell. Controls the activities of the cell by regulating gene expression. YouTube

Ribosomes- creates protein, they are found floating around the cytoplasm or attached to the endoplasmic reticulum.
Endoplasmic Reticulum- folds proteins in sacs and then transports them to the golgi apparatus in vesicles. the difference between the smooth ER and the rough ER is that the rough ER has ribosomes on it.
golgi apparatus- sorts proteins, transports lipids around the cell, and creates lysosomes.
Mitochondria- the energy source of the cell. It uses ATP as the source. This video describes the structure and function of mitochondria.

Chloroplast- This organelle is only found in plant cells. creates food for the cell using carbon dioxide and water. uses ATP as the energy source The green colour of algae, and of cabbages, pine trees and grasses, comes from small green bodies called chloroplasts within their cells. Chloroplasts are di...
