Transcript of How A cell is like a dance studio

How A cell is like a dance studio
The Nucleus is like the Dance Teacher
The Nucleus is like the dance teacher. She tells all the dancers what to do and how to do it. Just like the nucleus is the brain, or leader of the cell, The dance teacher, leads her class.
The cytoplasm is like the studio itself
The studio is where all the activity is found. It's where music plays, and walls reflect dancers learning ballet. Just like the cytoplaysm is where all the activity in a cell is
The dancers are like the Gogli bodies
Dancers Learn new dance moves and positions through combos from their teacher. The Gogli bodies receive materials from the endoplasmic reticulum who are given orders by the nucleus.
The Rough ER is like the Office Clerks
In a dance studio, the office clerks assemble the classes for each teacher, and after class, line the little kids up to leave. The rough ER is where the ribosomes assemble the protein.
The endoplasmic reticulum is like dance combonations
Dances are what move dancers across a studio floor from one corner to the other woth fancy foot work and graceful leaps. This is very similar to the ER, which caries important matireals from one part of the call to the other

The ribosomes are the music
Music echoes throughout the dance room causing students and teachers to be inspired to dance. This is similar to how ribosomes float freely through the cell producing protein
The Chloroplasts are like the water fountains
The Dancers need Water in order to keep hydrated and continuue dancing. This is like the chloroplasts keep the energy the cell needs to function.
The plasma Membrane is like the studio door
The door is the gateway to the studio. Just like the cell membrane provides a boundray and chooses what goes in and out.
The vacuole is like the costume closet
The costume closet holds all the costumes the dancers will need to preform. This is very similar to the vacuole holding the nutrients the cell needs to function
The Lysosomes are like the Dance captians
The Lysosomes break own old organelles. Just like the Dance captains try to get rid of any imperfections in the dance routine.
Thanks for watching!
