Organelles and Everyday Things

What are "Organelles?"
The word "Organelles" is another name for parts/components of a single cell. For example, the Mitochondria is a part in the cell that acts like a digestive system and as a powerhouse. It takes in nutrients, then breaks them down, after that it's then converted to useful energy.
Golgi Apparatus-The Packaging System
The Golgi Apparatus is like a small packaging system. It's particular function, is to store/package protein enzymes and carbohydrates before they are sent to a location. An example of the Golgi Apparatus is a postal office. A postal office packages and sends mail to different locations.
Mitochondria-The Powerhouse
The Mitochondria is a digestive system and a powerhouse. It's function is to digest nutrients to create clean and usable energy. A comparable example would be a humans stomach. As you know humans eat food and the body digest's it, which then is converted to energy.
Smooth ER-The Storage Container
The Smooth ER(Endoplasmic Reticulum) has it very own purpose. Although it is a storage container like the vacuole it still has a good function. It's function is to produce and store steroids. For example, a weight lifter. A weight lifter always builds strength by training and that energy is stored until the next use.
Cell Membrane
The Cell Membrane, is a protective barrier between the cytoplasm and the outside of the cell. It's function is to keep track of what enters and what exits the cell. It relates to a door because it controls who comes in and who comes out. Another example would be your privacy settings in Facebook, it gives you control over who can access your account and who can't.
Nucleus-The Brain
The Nucleus(also known as the Brain) function is to help control eating, movement and reproduction. As of being the brain of the cell, it houses all genetic material (such as your DNA) and/or information. The nucleus is like Barack Obama(the President). The President always keep control over a country like the Nucleus keeps control over the cell.
Lysosomes have a function/job which is to digest things which that might be used to digest food or break down the cell when it dies. A relative example would be a humans mouth, because it can break down proteins, nutrients and nucleic acids.
Vacuole-The Storage Bin
The Vacuole's (also known as the storage bin) function is to store food or any variety of nutrients a cell might need to live. The Vacuole can also store waste products to prevent contamination. A real life object related to the Vacuole is a refrigerator, because it can store food, water and other substances.
What are some examples of organelles?
- Cell Membrane
- Nucleus
- Vacuole
- Golgi body
- Mitochondria
- Smooth ER
- Lysosome
and etc.

Lysosomes-Little Enzymes Packages
A cell substance between the cell membrane and the nucleus, containing cytosol, organelles, a cytoskeleton, and some various particles. A good example will be the air we breath. The air we breath contain many odors/smells, particles of dirt and dust and etc.
Centriole-Cell Organizer
The Centriole(cell organizer) helps organize cells. They help the cell when it comes to dividing, they also help with positioning cells. An everyday item would be a tow truck because tow trucks position cars into designated parking slots.
Cytoskeleton-The structure of the cell
The Cytoskeleton is a binding of fibers throughout the cell's cytoplasm, which helps the cell maintain it's shape and gives strong support to the cell. For example, Metal Re-bar is used as a skeleton of a structure for increasing strength and durability.
