2.1. After the cell wall, you have to cross the cell membrane. Every cell has a cell membrane. The cell membrane controls what goes in and out of the cell.

3. Nuclear Envolope

3.1. The nucleus is surrounded by something called the nuclear envolope. The nuclear envolope protects the nucleus.

4. Chromatin

4.1. Chromatin are thin strands of genetic material. These things are basically instuctors to help the the leaf cells grow..

5. Nucleous

5.1. Nucleous's are small objects floating around the cell. The nucleous is where ribosomes are made.

6. Mitochondria

6.1. These are rod shaped structures that convert or change energy into food molecules.

7. Endoplasmic Reticulum

7.1. The endoplasmic Reticulum's passage ways carry proteins from one part of the cell to the other.

8. Ribosomes

8.1. Ribosomes are the producers of protein. The endoplasmic reticulum grabs the protein and carries it away.

9. Chloroplasts

9.1. Chloroplasts will take energy from the sun and make food for the plant. This process is called Photosynthesis.

10. Vacuoles

10.1. Vacuoles store food for the cells.

11. Lysosomes

11.1. Lysosomes break down certain materials in the cell.

12. Golgi Bodies

12.1. The golgi bodies carry the protein from the endoplasmic reticulum.
