Homework 1.Study Cell Structure Vocabulary 2.Cell Structure and Questions Assignment 3.Review Notes 4.Think about your cell analogy project
Quiz 1.What is the brain of the cell? 2.What is the post office of the cell? 3.What is the highway of the cell? 4.What are the garbage collectors of the cell? 5.What is the jello of the cell?
Cell Country Analogy
What is an analogy? An analogy is a way to describe something by comparing it point by point to something else. It is drawing a comparison in order to show a similarity between items.
Cell Wall The cell wall is a rigid covering found outside the cell membrane of plant. It helps maintain the shape of plant cells. What does the cell wall resemble in the Cell Country?
Cell Wall= The U.S. Borders
Cell membrane The cell membrane is a thin, flexible covering that surrounds the cell. It allows the cell to change shape and controls what goes into and out of the cell. What does the cell membrane resemble in the Cell Country?
Cell Membrane= The harbors or international airports
Cytoplasm The jelly-like area between the nucleus and the cell membrane is called the cytoplasm. It helps organelles move throughout the cell. What does the cytoplasm resemble in the Cell Country?
Cytoplasm= The land or environment
Nucleus The nucleus is a large, round/oval structure usually located near the center of the cell. It is the control center for all the activities of the cell. What does the nucleus resemble in the Cell Country?
Nucleus= President Obama/Washington D.C.
Endoplasmic Reticulum The endoplasmic reticulum consists of a network of tube-like passageways that proteins made by the ribosomes are transported through. What does the endoplasmic reticulum resemble in the Cell Country?
Endoplasmic Reticulum= Highways
Ribosomes The ribosomes are small grain-like bodies made mostly of RNA and are produced in the nucleus. The ribosomes make or construct proteins for the cell. What does the ribosome resemble in the Cell Country?
Ribosomes= Ex. Construction workers
Golgi Body The Golgi Bodies (also known as Golgi Apparatus or Golgi Complex) are responsible for modifying, packaging and transporting molecules to other locations inside the cell or outside the cell. What does the Golgi Complex resemble in the Cell Country?
Golgi Body= U.S. Post Office
Mitochondria The mitochondria are tiny bean-shaped structures in the cytoplasm with a smooth outer membrane, and a greatly folded inner membrane. They supply the energy for the cell by changing sugars into “cell energy”. What does the mitochondria resemble in the Cell Country?
Mitochondria= Power Plants
Chloroplast The chloroplast is an oval, green structure found in the cytoplasm. It contains chlorophyll. It captures the sun’s light energy and uses it to produce sugars in a process called photosynthesis. What does the chloroplast resemble in the Cell Country?
Vacuole The vacuole is a large, round, sac found in the cytoplasm. It stores food, water, wastes, or other materials needed by the cell. What does the vacuole resemble in the Cell Country?
Vacuoles= Lakes, water tanks, or grocery stores
Lysosome The lysosome is a small, round structure responsible for digesting large food particles or worn-out cell parts to be reused or exported from the cell. What does the lysosome resemble in the Cell Country?
Lysosomes= Waste Management or recycling centers
Independent activity With your table partners create an analogy for Sunnymead Middle School. Match the cell name to its analogies part. Write it on page 31 with your explanations.
