A Cell Is Like A School
Transcript of A Cell Is Like A School
A nucleus controls all the functions of the cell, like the principle in a school does.
Like the main office doors of a school the Nuclear Membrane controls what can and cannot enter the nucleus.
The nucleus contains the DNA of the cell, and the main office of a school contains all the information of the school.
The cell membrane controls what goes in and out of the cell, much like the main doors in a school control what go into the school.
A cell wall provides structure and shape to the cell, and the walls do the same for a school.
Much like a boiler room providing energy to the school, the mitochondria provides energy to the cell.
Ribosomes make proteins, and teach them, like how teachers teach students.
Lysosomes digest and get rid of unwanted substances, like how garbage cans get rid of substances.
A vacuole is like a water fountain because they both store water.
Like guidance counselors do for a school, the cytoskeleton provides support to the cell.
Like the halls of the school, the cytoplasm controls where you can go, and keeps you in place (or in the school).
The golgi apparatus tells the proteins where to go, like the room numbers tell students where to go.
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
The smooth endoplasmic reticulum serves as storage, much like how lockers are used.
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
The rough endoplasmic reticulum transports proteins, like how a school bus transports students.
Chloroplasts make food for the cell, just like a cafeteria makes food for students.
