NUCLEUS NUCLEOLUS MITOCHONDRIA CELL MEMBRANE CHROMOSOMES CHLOROPLASTS CYTOPLASM RIBOSOMES GOLGI BODIES VACUOLE LYSOSOMES CENTRIOLES ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM PORES OF MEMBRANE CELL WALL VESICLES CHROMOSOMES 1. ___________________________I’m rather bossy because I have all the codes for what needs to be done in the cell? 2. NUCLEOLUS ___________________________ Housed in the nucleus, I’m kinda like the human resource department who hires all the cell’s workers? Can you guess who I am? 3. CYTOPLASM ___________________________ I am the ‘filling of the cell’, kinda like the jelly in a doughnut. Who am I? 4. VACUOLE ___________________________ Storing food and water is what we do. We are bigger in a plant cell than an animal cell. Who might we be? 5. LYSOSOME ___________________________ Known as the suicide sacs in the cell. Watch out, I’ll come destroy you! What’s my name? 6. RIBOSOMES ___________________________ We are in abundance because we are busy making all of the proteins for your body! 7. CELL MEMBRANE ___________________________ We are like the ‘bouncers’ of the cell, only letting certain materials in and out. What are we? GOLGI BODIES 8. ___________________________ We are the warehouse of the cell. We take in materials to ship them elsewhere in the cell. You think you know us? 9. CENTRIOLES ___________________________ More is more. We help to make more cells. Who are we? CHLOROPLASTS 10. ___________________________ Green is color, making food is our game…what’s our name? MITOCHONDRIA 11. ___________________________ We are the sites of many chemical reactions, making energy for the cell. Who are we? ER 12. ___________________________ We are connected directly to the nucleus and provide a passage way for materials to move throughout cell. Who are we? 13. VESICLES ___________________________ We are the little, material-carrying ‘pods’ that get sent from place to place in the cell. What is our name? 14. PORES ___________________________ Our name rhyme with ‘doors’ and we have a their same function. Can you figure out who we are? 15. CELL WALL ___________________________ The thick out covering of plant cells. Made of cellulose. Who might I be? NUCLEUS 16. ___________________________ I am typically the center of the cell and I keep the blueprints of the cell inside my walls.
