Looking Inside Cells by Mind Map: Looking Inside Cells

1. Organelles In The Cyptoplasm

1.1. Mitochondria

1.1.1. Inside an organelle a rod shaped structure that is another form of organelle. They are known as the powerhouses of a cell because they convert energy in food molecules inside an organelle a rod shaped structure that is another form of organelle. They are known as the powerhouses of a cell because they convert energy in food molecules.

1.2. Endoplasmic Reticulum

1.2.1. The endoplasmic reticulum is like a huge maze that carries proteins and other materials from one part of a cell to the next.

1.3. Ribsomes

1.3.1. Ribsomes are small bodies that make proteins.

1.4. Golgi Bodies

1.4.1. golgi bodies look like a bunch of sacs and tubes that distribute proteins throughout the other parts of the cell.

1.5. Chloroplasts

1.5.1. Chloroplasts

1.6. Vacuoles

1.6.1. valcuoles are the storage garages of cells.

1.7. Lysosomes

1.7.1. Lysosomes are small and round structures that hold chemicals that break down certain materials in the cell.

2. Enter The Cell

2.1. The nucleus of a cell is surrounded by the membrane called a nuclear envelope. Just like how a mail envelope is meant to safely protect the nucleus.

2.2. Cell Wall

2.2.1. The cell wall is a rigid layer of nonliving materials that surrounds cells of some plants and some other organisms like humans.

2.3. Cell Membrane

2.3.1. All cells have cell membranes. In cells within cells, the membrane is located just inside the cell wall. It's main purpose is to control what substances come into and out of a cell.

2.4. Organelles

2.4.1. Nasturtiums brighten's up plants like flowers and strawberry patches. As you go deeper inside a cell you will find organelles which carry out specific functions within the cell. Just like how your lungs, heart and intestines have a different function, each organelle has a different job.

3. Sail Into The Nucleus

3.1. Nuclear Envolope

3.1.1. A nuclear envelope is just like a mail envelope in the sense that a mail envelope protects a document inside it.

3.2. Chromatin

3.2.1. Chromatin contains genetic material like an instruction book.

3.3. Nucleoulus

3.3.1. A nucleolus is where ribsomes are made. Ribsomes are organelles where proteins are produced and are improtant to a cells survival.

4. Specialized Cells

4.1. In many celled organisms, cells are organized into tissues, organs and organ systems. For example, some cells are the nervous system where when your body sees something that could hurt you like a hot pan, it will pull away before you can hurt yourself.

5. Bacterial Cells

5.1. All plant and animal cells are extremely different from bacterial cells. While it may have a cell wall and membrane it does not contain nucleus. It's made of genetic material which looks like thick tangled strings.
