Parts of a Cell Song

Science Songs

Here’s what each cell contains
Outer layer is the cell membrane
It controls what goes in and out

The cell gets energy from
The source of mitochondria
Also known as the powerhouse

And the ribosomes help the cell with protein synthesis
Endoplasmic reticulum will carry substances
Breaking down materials, lysosomes

The nucleus controls the cell kind of like a brain
Contains the DNA, when cells divide to replicate
Outside’s a nuclear membrane full of pores

Nucleolus makes ribosomal subunits from proteins
Secreting hormones are the Golgi bodies
Each unit of the cell is an organelle

The membrane keeps substances out
Inside cell filled with cytoplasm
Lysosomes help break things down
Energy from mitochondria
Protein factories, ribosomes
Endoplasmic reticulum
Transports substances like proteins
Nucleus controls things

Cell membrane, mitochondria, lysosomes, and the ribosomes
Cytoplasm, nucleus, E.R. and Golgi body, and the nucleolus

If you look at a plant cell
They have a few different organelles
Chloroplasts, vacuoles and a cell wall

Chloroplasts take the sun in
Convert to food through photosynthesis
Large vacuoles store food, water, and waste

The cell wall is the outer
Rigid, cellulose as the protector
provides structure to the cell

Cell membrane, mitochondria, lysosomes, and the ribosomes
Cytoplasm, nucleus, E.R. and Golgi body, and the nucleolus
