A Cell is Like…

Cell Parts…use at least 10 of these in your comparison of a cell to a larger idea (school, Walmart, a town, etc):

  • Cell Membrane – keeps cell together, flexible
  • Cell Wall – keeps PLANT cells together, rigid
  • Cytoplasm – liquid that fills the cell
  • Nucleus – control center of the cell
  • Nucleolus – makes ribosomes
  • Ribosomes – make protein
  • Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum – covered in ribosomes
  • Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum – inside the cell transport
  • Golgi Complex – transport out of the cell
  • Vesicle – packaging from the Golgi Complex
  • Mitochondria – create energy for the cell
  • Chloroplasts – in PLANTS turn sunlight into food
  • Vacuole – storage (mainly in PLANTS)
  • Lysosomes – clean up the cell
