Eukaryotic Organelles



​We are going to take a journey through an eukaryotic organelle and learn all that we can!

Animalsplantsalgae and fungi are all eukaryotes. These cells of eukaryotes are highly structured.

BIOLOGISTS, it is your job to learn all that you can about the eukaryotic cell!

Complete each task by watching the videos, playing the interactive game, and answering the questions that follow.

Good luck and have fun! (:



Task 1 

Watch this interesting video about all the parts of the eukaryotic cell.

You will begin to understand more about just how fascinating our body is!



Task 2 

Get a blank piece of paper. Take the short quiz below and see what you know!


1. The ________ is the master control of the cell. It contains genes, collections of DNA,

which determines every aspect of human anatomy and physiology.

a) Golgi Apparatus

b) Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum

c) Nucleus


2. The ____________ is a stacked collection of flat vesicles. Substances produced in the ER

are transported as vesicles and fuses with the _______________. 

a) Nucleus 

b) Golgi Apparatus

c) Mitochondria


3) These are the powerhouses of the cell and break down nutrients to yield energy. 

a) Mitochondria

b) Ribosomes

c) Cytoplasm


4)  A thin layer of protein and fat that surrounds the cell. It is semipermeable,

allowing some substances to pass into the cell and blocking others.

a) Cell Membrane

b) Ribosomes

c) Mitochondria



Follow the link below to an interactive matching game that allows you to cement your knowledge!



Congratulations! You’ve completed the assignment. 

For your final evaluation you be creating your own structure of an eukaryotic cell.

You can do this with any creative medium you would like.


Be sure to label all parts of the cell including the following: 

-cell membrane

-endoplasmic reticulum (smooth and rough)




-golgi apparatus





Some of your options are as follows:

  • Create a CAD model

  • Create a Powerpoint

  • Create a poster board 

  • Eukaryotic-cell-structure-animal

Next Generation Science Standards:

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

HS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms. 
HS-LS1-1. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
