What Is a Simple Plant Cell Model?

A simple plant cell model is a somewhat rectangular structure encased within a cell wall and cell membrane. Inside the cell is the cytoplasm, a jelly-like material that supports the organelles found in the cell.

The plant cell also has a large vacuole, or a fluid-filled area in the cell surrounded by a membrane.

The nucleus is found near the center of the cell and contains the nucleolus, where the cell makes ribonucleic acid, or RNA. Scattered throughout the plant cell is the amyloplast, the centrosome, the rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi bodies, chloroplasts which control photosynthesis and the mitochondrion.
