3The nucleus is the like principal because like the nucleus controls the cell, the principal controls the school.
4The cell membrane is like the front desk because the front desk regulates what enters and leaves the building, like the cell membrane regulates what enters and leaves the cell.
5The cell wall is like the school building because it also protects and supports like the cell wall does.
6The endoplasmic reticulum is like a hallway because it is a passage for students to classrooms like the ER is a passage for proteins.
7The golgi apparatus is like a janitor because they ship and package the trash outside like the golgi apparatus does with proteins.
8The mitochondrion is like a weight room because we get stronger and produce energy in the weight room like the mitochondrion does for the cell.
9The vacuole is like a cafeteria because it also stores water, food, and waste.
10The ribosome is like a classroom because we produce our work in the classroom like proteins are produced in the ribosome.
11Plant CellsContain a cell wall which is the outermost covering of the cellContain chloroplasts which carry out the process of photosynthesis and give plants their green colorAre usually squareContain one large central vacuole
12Animal Cells Contains a cytoskeleton inside the cell Does not contain chloroplasts since animals do not carry out photosynthesisCan be any shapeContain many small vacuoles
13Plant and Animal Cells Perform cell respiration They are eukaryotes meaning they have a nucleus
