Organelles found only in plant cells and not in animal cells (Mnemonic: Cute Cactus):

Chloroplasts - These organelles contain chlorophyll (a green pigment which attracts sunlight required for photosynthesis).

Cell Wall - Provide structural support and maintains shape of cells.

(Don't forget that plant cells and animal cells are both eukaryotic cells).
