Eukaryotic Cellular Organelles
Transcript Eukaryotic Cellular Organelles
A detailed description of each organelle’s
structure and function
Recall the similarities and
differences between prokaryotes and
What kind of human cells are in
How is each cell’s function related to its structure?
Label the Animal Cell
Label the Plant Cell
Cells produce different products
Just like different factories manufacture
different products, different cells produce
different chemical products
Match the product with the company that

Match the protein or lipid with the cell/tissue type
that manufactures it:
White blood cells
The Cell is Like a Factory
Just like a factory has many departments to
help it run smoothly, a cell has many
compartments, called organelles, that help it
Cell Organelle Jigsaw
Each lab group will research one set of organelles for the
rest of the class.
Draw and describe each structure
Describe each function
In Plant or Animal cells?
Any other reliable resource
Visit each station collecting information for each structure
The nucleus is like the Boss of the
What are cells called that have a nucleus?
What are some examples of cells that have a nucleus?
In what ways are chromatin and chromosomes different?
What is the relationship between the nuclear envelope
and the nucleus?
What is the relationship between the nucleolus and the
The Endomembrane System consists of
organelles that operate like an assembly line
to manufacture products.
The Endomembrane System
How will you remember the difference
between the Rough ER and the Smooth ER?
The Golgi is like the packaging and
Journal of a Protein
Cells manufacture proteins which serve many different
functions within the cell or beyond the cell.
Imagine you are a protein—write journal entries
describing your adventures as you are created and travel
through the cell to your final destination.
Include your relationship with the following structures in your
entries: nucleus, nucleolus, ribosome, rough Er, smooth ER,
Golgi apparatus, vesicles, vacuole, lysosome and cell membrane
Stop and Think:
What are the similarities between these? What are the
Rough ER, Smooth ER
Smooth ER, Golgi Apparatus
Ribosomes, Rough ER
Draw a Cell
Choose either an animal or plant cell
Copy from any diagram you choose, or draw your own
Include all internal structures
The mitochondria and chloroplasts
are the energy producers…
How are mitochondria and chloroplasts similar?
How are they related?
Describe the characteristics they have in common with
Plant cells contain both mitochondria and chloroplasts.
Explain why they must contain both.
The cytoskeleton is like the building’s
Cytoskeleton: a network of protein fibers
throughout the inside of the cell; gives it
structure and enables movement.

Some cells have external structures that
enable them to move, or to move things
Some cells have tiny projections, called Cilia
that help to move things around them, like
how a crowd moves a crowd surfer!
…Or their cilia may help to move the
Some other cells have flagella, long, whip-like
structures, to help propel them.
The Inner Life of a Cell
Cell Analogy Poster
Choose a theme that you can compare to the cell (factory)
Decide which elements of your theme have functions
analogous to cell structures (the factory line is like the rough
Write a title on your poster “A Plant Cell is Like a Factory”
Use the entire poster to draw your theme and label the
elements with the analogous cell structure
On the back, write a sentence explaining how each
element of your theme is like a structure in a cell (The
factory line makes circuit breakers like the rough ER makes
