Transcript of Animal Cell Analogies

The Animal Cell Cell Membrane The cell membrane is like a guarded community because the guarded community only lets people in who will not harm the neighborhood, like the cell membrane controls what goes in an out of the cell, and only let non-harmful things in. Lysosomes A lysosome is like the human stomach, because they both ‘digest’ food particles, just like the lysosome breaks down food and other worn out cell parts. Nucleus The nucleus is like a control tower at an airport because they both control the activity of their unit, like the nucleus directs all activity going on in the cell. Vacuoles A vacuole is like Mr. Graether's refrigerator because the both store things, just like a vacuole stores water, food, and waste. Ribosome A ribosome is like a factory because they both produce things, just like a ribosome produces protein. Endoplasmic Reticulum An endoplasmic reticulum is like a hallway because just like a hallway leads to places, the endoplasmic reticulum leads from one part of the cell to another. Mitochondria Mitochondria is like coffee, because coffee produces energy, just like mitochondria produces energy for the rest of the cell. Golgi Body The golgi body is like the U.S. Postal Service, because the Postal Service sends letters within the U.S.A., just like the golgi body receives material from the endoplasmic reticulum and sends it to other parts of the cell. Cytoplasm The cytoplasm is like Jello because they both have the same texture, like the cytoplasm is the gel-like fluid that the organelles reside in.
