Cell Organelles Worksheet

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.

Structure/Function Cell Part
1. Stores material within the cell
2. Closely stacked, flattened sacs (plants only)
3. The sites of protein synthesis
4. Transports materials within the cell
5. The region inside the cell except for the nucleus
6. Organelle that manages or controls all the cell functions in a eukaryotic cell
7. Contains chlorophyll, a green pigment that traps energy from sunlight and gives plants their green color
8. Digests excess or worn-out cell parts, food particles and invading viruses or bacteria
9. Small bumps located on portions of the endoplasmic reticulum
10. Provides temporary storage of food, enzymes and waste products
11. Firm, protective structure that gives the cell its shape in plants, fungi, most bacteria and some protests
12. Produces a usable form of energy for the cell
13. Packages proteins for transport out of the cell
14. Everything inside the cell including the nucleus
15. Site where ribosomes are made
16. The membrane surrounding the cell
17. Provides support for the cell, has two “subparts”
18. Name for the collection of DNA in the nucleus of eukaryotic cells
19. Consist of hollow tubes which provide support for the cell
20. Small hair-like structures used for movement or sensing things
21. Composed of a phospholipid bilayer
22. Longer whip-like structures used for movement

Put a check in the appropriate column(s) to indicate whether the following organelles are found in plant cells, animal cells or both.
