Transcript of How a Plant Cell is like a Shopping Mall

How a Plant Cell is like
a shopping mall. Nucleus The nucleus in the cell is like the security. It controls everything throughout cell, as does the security. It keeps everything under control. Mitochondria The mitochondria is like the food court in the mall. The food court provides energy, just like the mitochondria does to the cell. Lysosome The lysosome is basically the shoppers because the remove and recycle things, such as money, and clothes. Golgi Apparatus The golgi apparatus is like sale flyers in the mall. The golgi apparatus transports information throughout the cell, and sale flyers give out information about discounts. Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum The Rough ER is like an individual restaurant. It makes and packages proteins, and a restaurant like Red Robin makes, and sells individual proteins. Ribosome The Ribosome is the food in the individual restaurants in the food court. They provide protein and energy. Phospholipid Bilayer. The Phospholipid Bilayer are like the walls in the stores. In a cell, they make up the surrounding area of plasma and organelle membrane. Chromosome The chromosomes are the directory in a mall. They give directions to where stores are. In a cell, they give directions to making an organism. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum The Smooth ER is like a shopping bag. In the cell it is used for storage. When shopping, shoppers place the items they purchase into the bag. Nuclear Envelope The nuclear envelope would be the security guards jacket. It surrounds the nucleus, just as a security jacket surrounds the security guard and protects them. Nucleous The nucleous is the center of the mall. The center of the mall is where usually the food court is. The nucleous produces ribosomes, which in this case is the individual restaruaunts in the food court. Cytoskeleton The cytoskeleton in a mall is the structure of a building. The cytoskeleton gives shape to the cell, and keeps it up, like the structure of a mall. Chloroplast The chloroplast is like the lights and possibly solar panels in the mall. In the cell they contain clorophyll which absorbs sun light, and makes fuel. The mall could use solar panels to absorb the light, and transfer the energy to produce light.
