Cell is like a hospital

Transcript of Cell is like a hospital
A cell is like a......
The cell membrane is in both plant and animal cells and controls the inputs and outputs of a cell. A lobby is like a cell membrane because it controls who enters and leaves the hospital.
The cytoplasm is in both animal and plant cells and supports
as well as holds other organelles. Hospital beds are like a
cytoplasm because they hold up a patient. Without the cytoplasm,
the cell organelles are not supported and without hospital beds
patients have no support.
The nucleus is in plant and animal cells and controls all the activites of the cell. The main desk is like a nucleus because the main desk can call the security, janitors, doctors, or nurses where ever they are needed.
The mitochondria is in both plant and animal cells and converts food into energy. The generator and power line are like the mitochondria because the power line supplies light and electricity for the hospital.
The vacuole is small in animal cells and big in plant cells. Also, a vacuole stores materials such as water, salt, proteins and carbohydrates. A storage is like a vacuole because the storage for the hospital stores food, medicine, tools and cleaning supplies.
The ribosomes are in plant and animal cells and manufactures proteins. The patients and people are like the ribosomes because they are who are in the hospital. Without the ribosomes, the proteins are not handled or controlled right, and without the people in the hospital, the business would run slow.
The lysosomes are common in animal cells but rare in plant cells. They gathers and removes waste. Also, the janitors are like lysosomes because the janitors cleans up trash and waste. Without the lysosomes, the worn out materials would be in the way of the new materials and cause a lot of problems within the cell, and without the janitors, the hospital would look dirty, and unsanitary.
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
A cell wall is only in plant cells and is a rigid outer layer that provides structure for plants. The hospital walls are like a cell wall because they protect the patients allowing their privacy being seperated from others. Without the cell wall there would be no structure for plants and without walls there wouldn`t be a hospital.
A chloroplast is only in plant cells and turns sunlight into energy going through photosynthesis. A microwave in the hospital cafetaria is like a chloroplast because it is converting electrical energy into heat energy.
The smooth endoplasmic reticulum is in plant and animal cells and is where proteins and lipids are made, being packaged and sent off to different places. Also, a factory is like a smooth endoplasmic reticulum because medicines are made and distributed to pharmacies to sell.
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
The golgi bodies or golgi are in both plant and animal cells and packages and moves proteins to the outside. Similarly, the hospital`s mail department is like a golgi because the mail department is where things are packaged up to be sent out of the hospital
The rough endoplasmic reticulum is in plant and animal cells and moves ribosomes from the nucleus to the cytoplasm, where protiens are created. Corridors are like a rough endoplasmic reticulm because corridors are used to transport patients throughout the hospital.
