What are cell parts
In this PowerPoint you will learn
nine different cell parts
what function each part has
Even if cells are very tiny, they
are made up of smaller parts,
and the parts do different
As you can see cells have many parts. This
week you will learn about 9 of these parts.
The cell wall is only in plant cells.
Its purpose is to shape and protect the cell like
the outside wall of a shopping mall, which
provides shape and protection for it.
“Supporter and Protector”
The cell membrane holds and protects
the cell. It controls what substances
come into and out of the cell like an
entrance you have to pass to get into the
“Gate of the Cell”
The cytoplasm is the watery, gel-like
material in which cell parts move and cell
activities take place like the hallways of
the mall where people move.
“Area of Movement”
The mitochondria produces most of the
energy for the cell, like an electrical
system of the shopping mall, which
supplies electrical energy.
“Powerhouse of the Cell”
The chloroplast is only in plant cells, like
the cell wall. It contains chlorophyll,
which captures energy from sunlight and
uses it to produce food for the cell like
the pizza shop in the mall that makes
The vacuoles store food, water, and
chemicals, like water tank and pipes of
the mall, which store water.
The nucleus regulates and controls cell
activities, acting like the “brain” of the
cell, like the mall office, which regulates
and controls activities of the shopping
The nuclear membrane protects the nucleus
and also allow substances to pass in and out of
the nucleus, as the cell membrane does the
same for the cell like the main office like the
walls of the mall and its entrance, which protect
the office and let workers in and out.
“Gate of the Nucleus”
The chromosomes direct the activities of
cells like a mall office director who works
in the office and directs all the activities
of the shopping mall.
“Director of the Cell”
1. Choose the wrong statement from the
a) Mitochondria produces most of the energy for
b) Chloroplasts are “food producers.”
c) Cell wall controls the movements of materials
into and out of the cell.
d) Nucleus regulates and controls all cell
activities, acting as the “brain” of
2. Match the cell part to the nick name.
2) Nuclear membrane
a. Gate of the nucleus
b. Area of movement where cell parts move
c. Storage tanks
3. This cell part is surrounded by a nuclear
Is it a nucleus? YES or NO
4. This cell part is the powerhouse of the cell.
Is it a mitochondria? YES or NO
5. Are these chromosomes? YES or NO
