The mitochondria is the power house for the cell. It creates all the energy need for an animal cell. It is an oval shape with a double membrane system. There is approximently 300-800 in each cell. Mitchondria are very important to all organelles.
Chloroplasts are an oval shape energy maker. They are filled with chlorophyll which gives them their green color. They are all over in the cytoplasm of a plant cell. Without these plants cell could not get any food and starve.
Vacuoles are found all over in the cytoplasm of an animal cell. In a plant cell however, there is only one and it is the called the central vacuole. Vacoules are a single membrane around a fluid filled space. They hold food, water and minerals for the cell. Vacuoles are important to all organelles.
Centrioles are made of microtubles. They are found in cytoplasm near the nucleus. Centrioles help the cell divied in cell division. Without centrioles cells could not divide and make an organism.
