This page features an animal cell diagram labeled. Students can consider it an online worksheet on how to label the parts of an animal cell. It features the different parts of a cell scrambled. Students have to drag and drop at the correct location and check to see if they got it right. After taking this test several times, students will master this important anatomy lesson. Print out the worksheet to accompany this game. This exercise is for students in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grades.
In a nutshell, the Animal Cell is a type of eukaryotic cell. A cellular membrane surrounds a nucleus and organelles, but there is no cell wall. Like a large factory, each organelle performs a specific function in the cell. Not every cell contains every organelle, though, and some are more abundant than others. You can learn more about the functions of each organelle by exploring the body's tissues.
For more information about the internal structure of an animal cell, you can look at a diagram of the structure. A typical diagram of an animal cell includes the primary organelles and an unlabeled version at the bottom of the page. These versions are great for classroom posters, reports, and presentations. The basic anatomy of an animal cell is shown in the diagram above. A majority of cells are eukaryotic, and share their organelles with plants.
The basic structure of an animal cell is the centriole. It is a cluster of nine microtubule bundles that assist the cell division process. The Centriole also contains a complex family of processes called endocytosis, which involves the folding inward of the cell's plasma membrane. This helps keep matter and macromolecules inside the cell, as well as nutrient-rich vesicles.
Start learning about cell anatomy by playing the game above. See how far you have mastered all the parts of a cell. Have fun.
