Transcript of Creative Writing Assignment

Imagine you are the nucleus of a plant or animal cell and have been asked to mentor an organelle that is new to the cell.
You may present your tour in a variety of ways; just be sure it demonstrates a complete understanding of the organelles, their functions, and how they work together to support the cell.
Take your mentee on a tour of the cell, describing the major parts of the cell and their functions.
This controls the cell's activites and holds all genetic material.
Nuclear Membrane
Keeps the DNA inside of the nucleus, but allows mRNA and proteins through.
A dark body inside of the nucleus responsible for making and storing the RNA.
The Lysosomes
Moves the waste cells into the vacuoles to prevent the main cell from being contaminated.
The Rough ER
A series of tunnels running through the cell that have ribosomes attached to them. The tunnels transport proteins to the Golgi bodies.
Major Parts of an Animal Cell
The Golgi Complex

Sam Mitchell
The 'powerhouse' of the cell.
Composed of two membranes,
outer and inner. Found in
muscular cells.
Used to keep the spindle fibers at a steady temperature during cell divisions so that they don't overheat and damage the cell. Found in animal cells only.
Stores and packages cells for movement out of the cell.
Vacuoles are the storage bubbles found in cells. They are found in both plant and animal cells, but are significantly larger in the plant cells. Vacuoles are used to store food, nutrients, or anything needed for the plant to survive. They can also store waste products so that the cell is safe from contamination.
The cytoplasm is the kind of cushioning for the organelles. All of the contents of the cells of prokaryote organisms are stored within the cytoplasm. Within the cells of the eukaryote however, the contents of the cells are separate from the cytoplasm, and are called nucleoplasm. The cytoplasm is around 80% water and is colorless.
Chloroplasts are the food producers of the cell. Chloroplasts are found exclusively in plant cells. Chloroplasts work to convert the sun's energy, or light energy, into sugars that can be used cells. These sugars are usually stored in the vacuoles.
Ribosomes are the molecular machines used for creating proteins. They link amino acids together in an order directed by messenger RNA, or mRNA, to create their proteins.
