Transcript of Cell Analogies- Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory

Cell Analogies Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory Cell Membrane Nucleus Cell Wall Chromosomes Lymosomes Mitochondrion Ribosomes The cell membrane is like the fence because it controls what comes in and goes out of the cell in the same way Willy Wonka's fence because it lets delivery trucks and certain people in and out. The nucleus is like Willy Wonka because it is the control center of the cell and directs all of its activity in the same way Willy Wonka controls what happens in the factory and directs all the Oompa Loompas. The cell wall is like the walls of chocolate factory because it gives the plant cells it shape and is its structure in the same way the walls of the chocolate factory give the factory its shape and holds the factory up. The mitochondria is like Oompa Loompas because it transfers energy into food for the cell in the same the oompa loompas transfer the candy plants into edible candy products to sell. Chromosomes are like the chocolate recipe because they are uncoiled bundles of DNA and give you how you look in the same way the chocolate recipe makes the chocolate looks how it looks. The lysosomes are like the gumdrop janitors because they are the "clean-up crew" of the cell in the same way the gumdrop janitors are responsible for cleaning up the messes in the factory. Ribosomes are like candy plants because they produce proteins for the cell in the same way the candy plants produce substances to create the candy to sell.
