|Organelle||Description||Function||Picture||Location||Eukaryote, Prokaryote or Both|
|Cell Wall||Outer layer, Rigid, Strong, Made of Cellulose||Support and protect plant cell||Plant Only||Both|
|Cell Membrane||Surrounds all cells; Selectively permeable lipid bi-layer||Controls movement of material in and out of cell||Both Plant and Animal||Both|
|Nucleus||Large dense center of cell||Controls cell activities; contains DNA||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Nuclear Membrane||Surrounds nucleus; Selectively permeable||Controls movement of materials in and out of nucleus||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Cytoplasm||Jelly-like material where organelles are found||Supports and protects cell organelles||Both Plant and Animal||Both|
|Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (Rough E.R.)||Network of tubes or membranes; contains ribosomes||Carries materials through cell; location of ribosomes||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (Smooth E.R.)||Network of tubes or membranes; does not contain ribosomes||Carries materials through cell; does not contain ribosomes||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Nucleolus||Large structure inside nucleus||Synthesizes ribosomes||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Chloroplast||Green organelle containing stacks of thylakoids||Performs photosynthesis; traps solar energy to produce glucose and oxygen||Plant Only||Eukaryote|
|Mitochondria||Double membrane bound organelle containing matrix and cristae||Generates ATP energy for the cell through cellular respiration||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Ribosome||Very small organelles free-floating in cytoplasm and on Rough E.R.||Synthesizes proteins||Both Plant and Animal||Both|
|Vacuole||Larger in plant cells than animal cells. Liquid filled and membrane bound.||Stores water and other materials||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Vesicle||Small membrane bound sacks. Created during endocytosis and exocytosis.||Transport materials through cytoplasm.||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Centrosome||Star shaped structure on both ends of cell||Microtubule organizing center||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Golgi Apparatus||Flattened network of membrane-enclosed disks (cisternae)||Modifies and packages proteins||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
|Lysosome||Small organelle that contains digestive enzymes||Digests waste and other materials in cytoplasm.||Both Plant and Animal||Eukaryote|
