    The cell membrane is the


    • outter boundary of the cell 
    • cell wall 
    • controls what enters and exits the cell 

  2. 00:00:45 

    The cytoplasm is the jelly substance within the cell membrane that keeps all other organelles in place. Think of Jell-O that has berries inside.



  3. 00:00:59 

    The nucleus is the control center of a cell.


    • True 
    • False 

  4. 00:01:17 

    The nuclear membrane is the security guard for the nucleus. It helps regulate what comes in and out of the cell. The nuclear membrane has a very important job, because the nucleus' job is to maintain DNA, control metabolism, growth and reproduction. Wow! That must be why it is the control center of the cell!




  5. 00:01:33 

    Where is the nucleolus located?


    • Inside the nucleus 
    • Outside of the nucleus 
    • Outside the nuclear membrane 
    • Attached to the cell membrane

    Rough endoplasmic reticulum produces ___________ that are transported to Golgi body.


    • proteins 
    • fats 
    • lipids 

  7. 00:02:10 

    Smooth endoplasmic reticulum...


    • produces lipids and breaks down toxins 
    • produces fats and destroys protein 
    • poduces protiens and breaks down fat 
    • produces toxins to break down fat 

  8. 00:02:30 

    Ribosomes produce proteins, like Rough endoplasmic reticulum. It can be found within the rough endoplasmic reticulum and all around the cell.



  9. 00:02:46 

    Golgi body transports proteins and lipids to other organelles inside the cell.



  10. 00:03:02 

    Mitochondria is...


    • where cellular respiration takes place. 
    • where energy is produced. 
    • considered the powerhouse of the cell.  

  11. 00:03:20 

    The vacuole...


    • is the cells storage. 
    • stores water and salt. 
    • stores minerals and proteins. 
    • stores the nuleus and water 

  12. 00:03:33 

    Lysosomes are like the garbage trucks that take away the trash we have at home. These organelles get rid of dead organelles and waste within each cell. Lysosomes contain digestive chemicals that help them do their job.

    Animal cells and Plant cells are similar, but very different. If humans were made of plant cells, we may look like very odd trees. Let's see how animal and plant cells are different.



  14. 00:04:57 

    So far, the only difference between animal and plant cells is...


    • the size of the vacuole. 
    • the golgi body and ribosomes have a different function.  
    • the plant cell has a larger nucleus. 
    • the animal cell doesn't have a cell membrane. 

  15. 00:05:21 

    Plant cells have chloroplasts. These organelles...


    • contain clorophyll.  
    • are the site of photosynthesis.  
    • produce fats and protiens 
    • are also inside of the animal cell.  

  16. 00:05:35 

    The cell wall is another important difference in plant and animal cells. The cell wall gives the plant cell a specific shape. You can see the difference in the pictures below.
