Transcript of Jake and Ashton project

How a cell and a football team are similar. Cells and a Football team The cell nucleus is like a football team's coach. He decides the plays and what the team needs to do to keep running correctly, just like the nucleus tells the organelles what to do to keep the cell working right. Golgi Appartatus The film editor is similar to the Golgi because he sends films out to coaches so the coaches can look at players and recruit them. In a cell, the Golgi ships things throughout the cell so that they can get where they need to go. Nucleus Mitochondria Lysosomes Vacuole A cell's membrane is like a football team's captains and seniors. The cell membrane keeps the cell together and provides support for the cell. The captains and seniors of a football team are the leaders and they are one of the main supports of a team; just like the membrane. Cell Membrane Endoplasmic Reticulum Cytoplasm The cytoplasm is like the team as a whole. The cytoplasm in a cell, is all of the organelles together, as a whole. A cell's vacuole is like a football team's Gatorade tubs. Vacuoles store things that the cell needs like water, salts, proteins, and carbohydrates. The Gatorade tubs hold all of the Gatorade and water that the team needs to stay hydrated A football team's fans are like the mitochondria in a cell. Mitochondria give the cell energy and a team's fans get the team pumped for the game. Lysosomes are just like a football team's team moms. One thing that lysosomes do is break down lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins for the cell to use. Team moms host the big dinners before games and feed them lots of carbs so they have energy to use for the game. Chloroplasts The chloroplasts are like the motivational speech before a game. Chloroplasts make energy for the cell from sunlight so the cell can do what it needs to do. The motivational speech gets the team pumped and ready for the game and each player is told what they have to make sure they do. The ER is like a football team's offensive/defensive coordinators. The ER assembles membrane components and modifies proteins for the cell. The coordinators directs the players where to go and modifies how they work together. A cell's ribosomes are like the trainers of a team. The ribosomes make proteins for the cell because it needs proteins to function correctly. The trainers train the players so that they can do what they have to on the field Ribosomes A cell's microtubules/microfilaments are like a football team's plays. They move things around the cell and the plays tell the players where to move on the field. Microtubes/microfilaments
