Parts of a cell

Nucleus: carries genetic information for future generations and directs activities of the cell.

Nuclear membrane: protects the nucleus from chemicals

Ribosome: Manufactures protein

Mitochondria: Generates energy for the cell By converting sugar glucose and other nutrients into adenosine triphosphate. This gives the cell to perform basic functions

Lysosome: Breaks down break down worn-out organelles and ship their building blocks to the cytoplasm where they are used to construct new organelles. Lysosomes also dismantle and recycle proteins, lipids, and other molecules.

Cell membrane: separates the cell from its surroundings and regulates the traffic across the membrane.

Cytoplasm: A watery liquid that helps the biochemical functions of a cell

Chloroplasts: captures energy from the sun, to be used later to make sugar

Vacuole: stores compounds and helps in plant growth.
