Transcript of Cell Compared To City

Central Vacuole
The Central Vacuole stores water, ions, nutrients, and waste. This is like a city reservoir which stores water for the city.
Nucleus is the brain of the cell. I compare it to the City hall because it basically runs the whole city.
Endoplasmic Reticulum
The ER transports proteins through cell.
Which is much like the highway and roads in the city. It can also be compared to a delivery truck that transports packages.
Ribosomes produce the protein in the cell. It can be compared to a butcher shop in the city.
Vesicle is the organelle that transports substances to and from one cell to another and from one part of a cell to another.

This is like the Airplanes in the city. They transport items to and from the city.
Cell Compared To City
The Lysosomes break down large molecules, and recycle materials.
This is like a recycling plant or a county landfill when compared to a city.
Cytoskeleton helps the cell keep it’s shape. This is like the city boundary that keeps everything inside.
The mitochondria is the power house of the cell much like the power plant in a city.
Golgi Apparatus
The Golgi Apparatus is like the post office. Like the post office the Golgi Apparatus receives proteins, sorts, repackages, and sends the proteins away.
DNA carries the genetic material in the cell.
This is like the papers and important documents in the City Hall
