Transcript of Copy of Cell Analogy: Prison to Plant Cell

Prison and the Plant Cell
Alcatraz Island

Cell Membrane
The cell membrane is like the entrance of a prison
controls what substances go in and out
Cell Wall
The cell wall is like the walls of a prison
high, hard to get through
surrounds the membrane
gives the cell a boxlike shape.
The chloroplast is like the prison cafeteria
Contains the chlorophyll which produces food for the plant
uses the suns energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into food and oxygen for the plant
Endoplasmic Reticulum
The endoplasmic reticulum is like a prison halls
takes fat and protein to and from different parts of the cell
located directly outside the nucleus
The mitochondria is like the prison generator
where the energy is produced for the cell
Golgi Body
The golgi body is like the mail room in the prison
receives information and sends it to other parts of the cell
The cytoplasm is like the prison grounds
a gel-like fluid which holds the plant parts together inside the cell.
The nucleus is like the prison warden’s office
controls and directs what happens in every part of the cell
Nucleolus - the warden himself, inside the office, contains DNA
The vacuole is like the kitchen in the prison

largest part of that cell that stores food and water
helps maintains the shape of the cell
Cellulose - like barbed wire
long chains made out of sugar
support to cell wall
