Transcript of Cell Analogy Project: house

The endoplasmic reticulum, or ER, transports things across the cell, and helps make proteins and lipids.
Cell Analogy Project: house
Cell Membrane
The cell membrane in a cell is regulates what can come in and out; it is semipermeable and is made up of phospholipids
Ribosomes in a cell make proteins to deliver to other organelles.
Animal Cell
The cytoskeleton of a cell helps the cell retain its shape and movement. It also assists in organelle movement.
The cytoskeleton of a cell can be compared to the walls of a house. The walls of a house are similar to the cytoskeleton of a cell because they provide support for a house. They are also made of very strong material so the house will not collapse on itself.
The nucleus of a cell is like the main control center of a cell. It watches the cell's activities and stores the DNA. The nucleus also functions to assist in making ribosomes.
The nucleus of a cell is like your parents. Your parents control most of things that take place inside your house.
The cell membrane of a cell is the like the door of a house. The door regulates who can come in and who can go out.
The ribosomes in a cell are like the kitchen in a house. In the kitchen, meals are cooked and prepared. It is similar to ribosomes using amino acids to make proteins.
Endoplasmic Reticulum
The ER is like the hallways in a house. Hallways transport people from one room to another throughout a house.
Golgi Body
Mitochondrion in a cell provide the cell with energy. They convert food into ATP.
The mitochondrion are like the electricity in a house. Electricity supplies a house with all its energy to perform its daily functions such as heating and air conditioning.
lysosomes in a cell protect against foreign invaders, contain digestive enzymes, and discard cell wastes.
The lysosomes in a cell are like a trash can. Lysosomes get rid of cell wastes , and trash cans get rid of household wastes.
Vacuoles store food and water for cells. They are usually found to be larger in plant cells.
A cell's vacuole can be compared to a refrigerator. Both refrigerators and vacuoles store food.
The Golgi body in a cell packages and distributes proteins and other materials in and out of the cell.
A Golgi body can be compared to a car. The car transports people out of the house to other places.
Th cytoplasm in a cell is the jelly-like substance in which the cell's organelles are located.
The cytoplasm in a cell is like the air in a house. it fills up the empty space between every room.
