Cell Analogies
Cell Membrane
The stands in a gym seperates areas of fair play during a volleyball match. Similarly the cell membrane forma boundary between a cell and its surroundings
The colored sport court that you play on is just like the cytoplasm in that it contains all the organelles (players) in the cell (court/game)
The nucleus which is the storehouse for most of the DNA, is similar to the coaches playbook in volleyball. Both of these contain important information for the cell or game to run smoothly
The Nucleolus which is found in the nucleus and contain
RNA, are similar to the stats the coach takes, this determinds who is winning point and who is not.
The Mitochondria provides energy to the cell. If the cell is the team then mitochondria would be the food (power bars) that the players eat. This food provides energy needed during a game.
The Cytoskeleton is a network of proeins that is constantly changing to meet the needs of the cell. Similarly a setters job is to give the correct set to the hitter, meeting the hitters needs.
Ribosomes are tiny organelles that link amino acids together to form proteins. After a rally the person working the scoreboard then must determind which side recieved the point and give it to the correct team. In this case, the ribosomes would be the reffing staff.
Golgi Aparatus
The membrane that processes, sorts, and delivers protein is similar to the first rule you learn about volleyball. How to win points (proteins)
Pass (process)
Set (sort)
Hit (deliver)
The Chloroplasts are organelles that carry out photosynthesis, if photosynthesis are the plays being put into action than the players would be considered chloroplast
The vacuole is a fluid-filled sace used for the storage of matericals needed by a cell. A ball cart in a game contains balls used during warm up and during the game.
Lysosomes are membrane-bound organelles that contain enzymes and defend a cell from invading bacteria or viruses. Lysosomes are similar to the two people reffing a game. They prevent players from doing anything against the rules of volleyball.
Cell Wall
The cell wall is a rigid layer that gives protection, support, and shape to the cell. The outline of the court (in or out lines) shape the game.
The DNA in a cell contains genes that are instructions for making proteins. These instructions are just like the plays in the playbook that tell the players what to do during a match
Endoplasmic Reticulum
The Endoplasmic reticulum is an interconnected network of thin folded membranes that must be large enough to accommodate all the procceses that occur on the surface. This is similar to the coaching staff, there must be enough coaches for a team in order to take stats, coach as well as call the serve.
protein which is considered to be the main molecule of a cell is similar to points in a game. They are both necessary components
Volleyball Game
