Transcript of Cell Structure Analogies

Cell Analogies By: Alejandra Pacheco The cell membrane is like the walls, automatic doors, and security guards in a shopping mall because they are what surround the mall and let people in and out like the cell membrane forms a barrier between the cytoplasm and the environment outside the cell. Cell Membrane: The lysosomes are like the janitors in a shopping mall because they clean and throw away anything that is not needed anymore like the lysosomes contain chemicals that break down food particles and worn out cell parts. Lysosomes : The nucleus is like the company that owns the mall because it is what controls the whole shopping mall like the nucleus directs all of the cell’s activities, including reproduction. Nucleus: The vacuoles are like the storage places of each store because that is where the store keeps any extra items like the vacuoles store food, water, waste, and other materials. Vacuoles: The ribosomes are like the stores in a shopping mall because they produce money (which they obtain from the things they sell) and can be located next to another store or anywhere else in a shopping mall like the ribosomes function as factories to produce proteins and may be attached to the endoplasmic reticulum or float in the cytoplasm. The endoplasmic reticulum is like the hallways, elevators and mechanical stairs in a shopping mall because they carry people from one side of the shopping mall to the other like the endoplasmic reticulum forms a maze of passageways in which proteins and other materials are carried from one part of the cell to another. Endoplasmic Reticulum: The mitochondria is like the power generator of a shopping mall because that is what makes all the energy that the stores require like the mitochondria (rod-shaped organelles) produces most of the cell’s energy. Mitochondria: The Golgi body is like the people in charge of the shipping of items of each store in the mall because they are the people that control what comes in and what is shipped out of the stores like the Golgi body is in charge of receiving and sending materials of the cell. Golgi Body: The cytoplasm is like the big stores like (Ripley, Falabella, Paris) in a mall because they contain many brands of stores and the clothes they sell like the cytoplasm includes a gel-like fluid in which many different organelles are found.
