Transcript of Cell Analogy - FOOTBALL

The rough endoplasmic reticulum is very similar to the running back on the football team. The rough endoplasmic reticulum carries proteins through the cell in , just like the reticulum carries the ball down the field.

The smooth ER is like the players handbook. The smooth ER creates hormones and lipids and distributes them, just like how the handbook creates plays and the books are distributed to the players.
The plasma membrane of a cell is like the O-Line of a football team. The O-Line separates the quarterback and running backs from the defenders. Similar to how the plasma membrane separates the inside of the cell from the outside and protects what is inside.
The lysosome is the trainer of a football team, because as a lysosome gets rid of things that are unwanted in the cell and breaks down waste materials, the trainer gets rid of unwanted injuries and breaks down fat.
Cell Analogy - FOOTBALL

The nucleus is the coach of the team. The coach controls all actions of the players in the game and makes sure everything is functioning and running smoothly. Just like how the nucleus is in control of all cell activity.
The ribosomes are like the practices the players attend. By going to practice the player build muscle and replenish their bodies with protein. The ribosomes work the same way. They provide the cells with the right amount of proteins.

The golgi apparatus is like the equipment manager of the football team. The equipment manager moves equipment around and modifies it to make sure everything is in order. This is similar to how the golgi apparatus moves around and modifies proteins.

The mitochondria is like the water boy of the football team. Just like a mitochondria, the water boy supplies the team with energy just so the players do not get dehydrated.

The chloroplast is like the mascot. This is because the chloroplast stores up a lot of energy and uses it as food for plants, like the mascot stores up energy and uses it to pump up the players.

The vacuole is like a football team’s locker room. Vacuoles are used for storage, for important elements to keep plants alive much like a team locker room.
