Do you need to memorize all the parts of the plant cell for science or biology class? In that case, this printable plant cell diagram may come in handy. Study the labeled study aid first. Then print a copy of the unlabeled plant cell to quiz yourself before your upcoming exam. Finally, at the bottom of the page you’ll find a handy list of all the plant cell organelles and their functions.
Below you will find six variations of the plant cell diagram: labeled, blank, and unlabeled, in color and black and white.
Labeled Plant Cell Diagram
Here are the two labeled plant cells. Teachers can print these as study guides for their students.
Blank Plant Cell Diagram Worksheet
Next we have a pair of blank plant cell diagrams. See if you know all the organelles by filling in the blanks.
Unlabeled Plant Cell Diagram
Last but not least, an unlabeled version of the plant cell. This may come in handy for students making a science project, poster, or presentation.
Organelles and their Functions
Nucleus – The cell nucleus is an organelle that contains most of the cell’s genetic material. The nucleus regulates cell growth and metabolism.
Nucleolus – The nucleolus is made of RNA and proteins. It transcribes and modifies RNA.
Chromatin – Chromatin are macromolecules made up of DNA, protein and RNA.
Chloroplast – The chloroplast contains chlorophyll and conducts photosynthesis.
Cytoskeleton – The cytoskeleton gives a cell its shape, and prevents if from deforming.
Cytoplasm – The cytoplasm is made up of cytosal, which is a gel-like substance. It is 80% water.
Plasma Membrane – Also known as the cell membrane, the plasma membrane is a selectively permeable wall that separates the cell interior from the outside environment.
Cell Wall – A rigid layer surrounding the plasma membrane, found in plant, fungi and bacteria cells.
Ribosomes – The ribosomes are made of protein and RNA. They convert genetic material into protein.
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum – The rough endoplasmic reticulum manufactures enzymes and proteins.
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum – The smooth endoplasmic reticulum manufactures lipids, phospholipids, and steroids.
Golgi Apparatus – The golgi apparatus, also known as the golgi bodies, packages protein inside a cell, in preparation for secretion.
Mitochondria – The mitochondria are a cell’s power plants. They generate ATP.
Plasmodesmata – small channels in the cell wall, allowing transport and communication.
Peroxisome – organelles containing enzymes that contribute to metabolic reactions.
Central Vacuole – The central vacuole holds materials and wastes.
