Organelle Table
Make a three column table.
The most left column should be about an inch wide.
Split the remaining area to make to more columns.
In the first column write the organelle's name. (Numbered items)
In the second column, describe the organelle. (Items with one dash)
In the third column, write the organelle's function. (Items with two dashes)
Put the information that follows into this table.

1. Cell membrane's
-surrounds the cell
-two layers of a fat like substance
-proteins embedded in the layers
--controls what goes in and out of the cell
2. Nucleus
-largest organelle
-contains chromosomes and nucleolus
-found in eukaryotic cells
--controls all cell activities
--stores the hereditary material
3. Nuclear membrane
-surrounds the nucleus
-has pores
--controls what enters and leaves the nucleus
4. Chromosomes
-long threads of DNA
-located in nucleus
--stores the genetic codes
5. Nucleolus
-darker area of nucleus
--makes ribosome parts
6. Cytoplasm
-jelly like
-everything inside the cell membrane and outside the nucleus
--where cellular reaction take place
--holds organelles of eukaryotic cells
7. Ribosomes
- Each cell contains thousands
-attached to endoplasmic reticulum or free
-- miniature 'protein factories'
8. Endoplasmic reticulum
-network of membranes and tubes
-spans from the nucleus to cell membrane
-rough has attached ribosomes
-smooth lacks ribosomes
--stores, separates, and serves as cell's transport system
--moves proteins to the Golgi body
9. Golgi body
-flat stack of membrane sacs
-found near endoplasmic reticulum
--packages substances in membranes for shipping
10. Mitochondria
-oval in shape
-double-layered outer membrane with inner folds
-contains its own genetic material
--energy (ATP) producing reactions take place on its membranes
11. Vacuoles
-membrane-bound sacs
--store needed materials or wastes
--water storage in plants
12. Lysosome
-membrane bound sac
--contains digestive enzymes
-- breaks down food, worn cell parts, and wastes
13. Cell wall
-plants, algae, and fungi
- made of cellulose in plants
-outside cell membrane
--protects and supports the cell
14. Cytoskeleton
- many small protein fibers
-extends throughout the cell
--supports and provides shape
-- Aids movement of materials in and out of cells
15. Chloroplast
-in plants
-football shaped
-green with chlorophyll
-grana-stacks of disks
-stroma-clear areas
--Chlorophyll captures energy from light and uses it to join Water and Oxygen to make the sugar Glucose.
