1

Name three features a plant cell has that an animal cell doesn't.

Cell wall, vacuole and chloroplasts.

2

What is mitochondria?

Where the reactions for respiration take place. The respiration releases energy needed for the cell to function.

3

What does the cytoplasm do?

Chemical reactions take place here with enzymes regulating them.

4

What are ribosomes used for?

Production of proteins.

5

What is the cell wall made of?

Cellulose.

6

What happens in the chloroplasts?

Photosynthesis.

7

What does the nucleus do?

Controls the activities of the cell using genetic material within it.

8

What does the cell wall do?

Supports the wall, strengthening it.

9

What does the cell membrane do?

Holds the cell together and regulates what enters and leaves.

10

What is a vacuole?

Contains cell sap, a mixture of sugars and salts.
