Are You in Cell School?
A guide to your school..
By Lilian Robinson
Everybody has seen a plant cell, right? No? Here's what it looks like...
I don't know about you but, it reminds me of something most of us have been through...
Think about it... Like a cell, a school needs to have someone (or something) to run it, a part to keep it clean, a place to store energy, and so on.
Our question is what equals what?
There is 17 parts of the cell that we are going to relate to.
1. Nucleus
2. Nucleolus
3. Cytosol
4. Centrosome (not shown)
5. Golgi
6. Lysosome (not shown)
7. Peroxisome (not shown)
8. Secretory Vesicles
9. Cell Membrane (thin pink line)
10. Mitochondrion
11. Vacuole
12. Cell Wall
13. Chloroplast
14. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
15. Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
16. Ribosomes (small dots)
17. Cytoskeleton (not shown)
1. Nucleus = Principal
Nucleus: Communicates with (and runs) the parts of the cell, contains DNA which makes the cell unique.
Principal: Communicates with (and runs) the employees and has ideas which make the school unique.
2. Nucleolus = Assistant Principal
Nucleolus: Produces ribosomes and is monitored by the nucleus.

Assistant Principal: Handles teachers and is monitored by the Principal.
Nucleolus = assistant of Nucleus
Assistant Principal = assistant of Principal
3. Cytosol = Halls
Cytosol: Liquid in which all the organelles reside and is full of proteins and path ways for nutrients.

Halls: Passages through-out the school in which all the offices reside and is a way to get information from other parts of the school.
Task completed
4. Centrosome = Electives
Centrosome: Where microtubles are produced and organized
Electives: Where talents are produced and organized
5. Golgi = Office
Golgi: A group of membrane-bound vesicles that transport packaged molecules around the cell
Office: A group of employees and volunteers that transport important documents around the school.
6. Lysosome = Nurse
Lysosome : Rare in most cells but, provides a hydrolytic enzymes needed for intracellular digestion.
Nurse: Rare in schools (can't afford it) but, provides medical help needed for function.
7. Peroxisome = Counselor
Peroxisome: Converts thick acids to sugar, assists chloroplasts, and stops the cell producing toxins.
Counselor: Converts menacing issues and documents into easy sheets and simple problems, also stops the school from producing "problems".
8. Secretory Vesicles = Documents
Secretory Vesicles: (hormones) Are delivered to cells surface for release.

Documents: (work) Is delivered off campus and around the school for viewing
9. Cell Membrane = Security
Cell Membrane: 2nd defense against infections and it lets the good in and keeps the bad out.
Security: 2nd defense against troubles and lets the good in and keeps the bad out
11. Mitochondrion = Money (School District)
Mitochondrion: Power centers of the cell
Money (School District): Provides the ability and funding for the school to run
11. Vacuole = Cleaning Crew
Vacuole: Stores nutrients, releases waste, and helps the cell grow.
Cleaning Crew: Stores cleaning products, cleans up waste, clean = more kids come to school.
12. Cell Wall = School Wall
Cell Wall: Maintains the cell's shape, protective barrier,and a rigid layer made of polysaccharides.
School Wall: Maintains the school's shape, protects it, and is made of a rough layer of bricks.
13. Chloroplasts = Lunch Team
Chloroplasts: Responsible for photosynthesis and the plant's green color, converts the sunlight's energy and water plus CO2 to make the sugars the plant needs to survive.
Lunch Team: Responsible for making our meals, keeping us healthy, and really helps out when you forget breakfast.
14. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum = Tutor
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum: Breaks down liquid toxins in liver cells and controls calcium release in muscles.
Tutor: Breaks down tough equations in math and controls homework understanding (can HELP you get ahead)
15. Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum = Bus
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum: Ribosomes collect on the surface to be transported through-out the cell
Bus: Kids collect in the inside to be transported out/in to the school.
16. Ribosomes = Kids
Ribosomes: Packets of protein that can be big or small that are also transported around the cell
Kids: Can be big or small and are moved around the school to get an education.
17. Cytoskeleton = Teachers
Cytoskeleton: Helps maintain the cells shape and the internal movement of organelles couldn't happen without it.
Teachers: Keeps the school running (maintains school's shape) because no teachers = no school.
That wasn't so bad.... It was only 53 slides...
I hope you learned something and you liked it...
This has been cell school with me, Lilian Robinson! Bye!
3. Cytosol = Halls
Great Resources!
