Plant and Animal cells


  • Nucleus - contains DNA that controls what the cell does.
  • Cytoplasm - substance where most of the chemical reactions happen.
  • Cell membrane - holds the cell together and controls what goes in and out.
  • Mitochondria - these are where most of the reactions for respiration take place. Respiration releases energy that the cell needs to work.


  • Things only a Plant cell has:
  • Rigid cell wall - made of cellulose, gives support for the cell.
  • Large vacuole - contains cell sap, a weak solution of sugar and salts.
  • Chloroplasts - where photosynthesis occurs. They contain a green substance called chlorophyll.

Overall comparison

All living things are made of cells, they are the building blocks of every organism on the planet.
