Transcript of Animal Cells are like Barns

By Sophia Chavonelle Animal Cells are like Barns The cell membrane is like the walls and fences of the barn because they both keep things from getting in and escaping, and they regulate what enters/exits the structure. The cell membrane is like the walls and fences of the barn. The nucleus is like the viewing room because they both control all of the activities, like the brain. The Nucleus is like the Viewing Room. The cytoplasm is like the hallways of the barn. The cytoplasm is like the hallways of the barn because they both connect all of the features of the structure together. They both have other things leading off like the nucleus/viewing room and the ribosomes/feeding room The ribosomes are like the feeding room. The ribosomes are like the feeding room because they both contain and supply the structure (barn or cell) with necessary vitamins and dietary needs. They are both located in the “cytoplasm” or inside of barn and also share the similarity of making and mixing all of the structure’s food in one place. However, there are many more ribosomes in a cell than there are feeding rooms in a barn. The ribosomes are made by the nucleolus. The nucleolus is like the manager or owner of the barn. The nuclear membrane is like the walls of the viewing room. The lysosomes are like the stall cleaners of the barn. The stall cleaners are like the lysosomes because they both are the “cleanup crew” of the structure. They both clean the structure and get rid of waste. The Rough ER is like the Front-end Loader Tractor The rough ER is like a front-end loader tractor because they both transport materials throughout the structure (barn/animal cell) The smooth ER is like the tractor. The smooth ER is like the tractor on the farm because they both transport necessary materials. “It contains enzymes and produces and digests lipids (fats) and membrane proteins; smooth ER buds off from rough ER, moving the newly-made proteins and lipids to the Golgi body, lysosomes, and membranes.” -from www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/animals/cell/ The Golgi Bodies are like thehay bailing machines. Golgi bodies are like the hay bailing machines because they both pack food (proteins) into plastic/membrane-bound packages for export from the cell. The mitochondria are like the horses. The mitochondria are like the horses because they are both the powerhouses of the barn and produce most energy needed to carry out functions. The vacuoles are like the hay loft of the barn. The vacuoles are like the hay loft of the barn because they both store food products. However, vacuoles also store other materials such as waste products, but barns do not store waste products. The nucleolus is like the manager or owner of the barn because they both build important things in the barn (ribosomes/feeding room) and they both run and take part in running the structure (barn/cell). The nuclear membrane is like the walls of the viewing room because they both surround the viewing room/nucleus.
