5Animal Cell contd. Cytoskeleton (inside cell) No chloroplasts Can be any shapeMany small vacuoles
6Similarities between Plant & Animal Cells Do respirationHave a nucleusAre eukaryotes
7CellA cell is like a house. There are many things that make a house function properly just like many things make up a cell.
8NucleusThe nucleus is the control center of the cell. It is like the living room in a house because both places are where things meet. They are the biggest part of both.
9Cell MembraneThe cell membrane regulates what goes into and out of the cell. In a house this is like the door. In both the door and cell membrane things go in and out of them.
10Cell WallThe cell wall is located inside of the plant. This is what gives the organelle structure and support. In a house the walls and ceilings give it support.
11Endoplasmic Reticulum Also known as the E.R. the endoplasmic reticulum is made up of passages for proteins to move throughout the cell. This is like hallways because they both provide a way to move throughout one another.
12Golgi ApparatusThe Golgi apparatus packages and ships proteins. This is like what a mailman does. My dad is a mailman so he is like the Golgi apparatus in my house.
13MitochondrionThe mitochondrion is what produces energy within the organelle. This is like electricity that runs into the house because they both produce energy.
14VacuoleThe vacuole is where waste, water, and food is stored. A toilet also stores waste, water, and food.
15RibosomeThe ribosome produces proteins. This is like a kitchen in a house. Inside the kitchen is where food is made that contains proteins. So when you’re cooking it is like producing a bunch of proteins. Food is essential to survive just like proteins.
