S: ANIMAL CELLS!
FC: Hello! I'm Maddi and I am about to share a scrapbook about CELLS with you! Let's begin....
1: Let's start with the Nucleus! The Nucleus is sometimes referred to as the Control Center, which pretty much explains it. The nucleus is in charge of controlling the activities going on in the cell. Pretty simple, huh?
2: Next, we will discuss the Cell Membrane. (Don't get this mixed up with the Cell Wall because the Cell Wall is only found in PLANTS.) The Cell Membrane is selectively permeable, meaning it only lets certain liquids into the cell. The Cell Membrane is what separates the interior of the cell from the outside environment.
3: Next topic is the Mitochondrion, which is the "Powerhouse" of the cell. The mitochondrion generates most the cell's ATP which is energy. It also is in control of the cell cycle and the death of the cell.
4: An important organelle that is located in the nucleus is known as the nucleolus. The nucleolus is where the RNA is transcribed and assembled.
5: Next up...the Vacuole! The Vacuole is a permeable membrane that isolates harmful materials that can kill or threaten the cell. It also removes waste products and fills with liquids, including enzymes in solution and H2O!
6: This organelle is called a Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum. It's considered "rough" because it has ribosomes covering it. A ribosome binds to the RER when it begins to synthesize a protein that needs to be moved out of the cell.
7: Next are the Lysosomes. Lysosomes contain enzymes and the enzymes break down food which makes the food easier to digest. Lysosomes digest excess or worn out organelles and food particles. Lysosomes will fuse with vacuoles to get rid of it's enzymes and to digest the contents.
8: Ribosomes. They're important too. They are in charge of synthesizing proteins from amino acids. Pretty simple...but still important. Ribosomes are made up of protein and RNA.
9: This next organelle is called an Endoplasmic Reticulum. From the picture, can anyone guess whether it's smooth or rough? -SMOOTH!- The Smooth ER is in charge of synthesizing lipids and steroids.
10: Last, but definitely not least is the Golgi Apparatus. The Golgi Apparatus is basically the post office. It processes and packages lipid and proteins before they get to their destination.
11: Well folks, thats my amazing, knowledgeable scrapbook on CELLS! I hope you learn and retain a bunch! Thank You!
