  32. Define what the Golgi Apparatus is. 
    • It sorts,packages & transports cells
    • *Like a post office!
  33. Define what a vacuole is.
    • Stores food, water, wastes, and other materials
    • Plants usually have one large vacuole while animals have many small ones.
    • *Vacume! It stores!
