Animal Cell Analogy ProjectComparing the Animal Cell to a School : 

Animal Cell Analogy ProjectComparing the Animal Cell to a School By: Christine Fairchild & Kathryn Montemayor

The Animal Cell : 

The Animal Cell

The Nucleus : 

The Nucleus The nucleus is like the main office of a school because it manages activities, initiates production, and controls activities of a factory in the same way the main office manages attendance, activities, and discipline.

Nucleolus : 

Nucleolus The nucleolus is like a yearbook committee because it produces the ribosomes in the same way the yearbook committee makes yearbooks for students.

Microfilaments & Microtubules : 

Microfilaments & Microtubules Microfilaments and microtubules are like the contractors because the microfilaments form the extensive network in some cells and produce a tough, flexible framework that supports the cell…

Microfilaments/Microtubules(Continued) : 

Microfilaments/Microtubules(Continued) …while microtubules also help to build projections from the cell surface in the same way contractors build the halls and buildings of the school.

Cilia : 

Cilia Cilium is like drum core in the school’s marching band because it beats rhythmically to aid the movement of a fluid past the cell or the movement of the organism through liquid in the same way the drum core provides the beat for the movement of the marching band.

Flagella : 

Flagella Flagellum is like a pool because it enables cells to swim rapidly through liquids in the same way swimmers race in pool.

Vacuoles : 

Vacuoles The vacuole is like a storage or custodian closet because it stores materials such as water, salts, proteins, and carbohydrates and pumps excess water out of the cell by contracting rhythmetically the same way the storage closet keeps all the cleaning materials and extra supplies.

Lysosomes : 

Lysosomes The lysosome is like a shredder because it breaks down parts that can be recycled in the same way the shredder breaks down paper.

Centrioles : 

Centrioles The centriole is like a treasurer because it helps organize the cell division in the same way the treasurer organizes the money that comes into the school.

Ribosomes : 

Ribosomes The ribosome is like a student because it produces proteins by following coded instructions that come from the nucleus in the same way a student follows directions that their teachers give them.

Chromatin : 

Chromatin The chromatin is like a little group of friends, or clique, because it condenses to form chromosomes when a cell divides in the same way a clique hangs out and come together during assemblies.

Cytoplasm : 

Cytoplasm The cytoplasm is like an activities director (ASB teacher) because it is the portion of the cell outside the nucleus like the activities director works with the main office.

Mitochondria : 

Mitochondria The mitochondria is like a map of the school because it converts the chemical energy stored in food into compounds that are more convenient for the cell to use in the same way a map of the school shows all of the classrooms on one sheet of paper.

Golgi Apparatus : 

Golgi Apparatus The Golgi apparatus is like a lunch lady because it modifies, sorts, and packages proteins and other materials in the same way the lunch lady sorts the food to be distributed.

Cell Membrane : 

Cell Membrane The cell or plasma membrane is like a security guard because the cell membrane regulates what enters and leaves the cell and also provides protection and support in the same way security guards stand by the gates to control who comes in and out.

Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum : 

Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum The rough E.R. is like the school forum because it is involved in the synthesis of proteins and has ribosomes on its surface in the same way students are always located in the forum.

Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum : 

Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum The smooth E.R. is like a teachers’ lounge because ribosomes are not found on its surface and it contains collections of enzymes that perform specialized tasks in the same way students are not found in the teachers’ lounge and how each teacher has different tasks and classes to teach.
