Transcript

  • 1. Eukaryotic (Plant) Cell vs. Apartment Sample: Cell Analogy Project
  • 2. Typical Plant Cell vs. My Apartment
  • 3. Cell Wall = Walls of Apartment
    • Thick and rigid structure
    • Surrounds cell
    • Provides support
    • Provides protection
    • Maintains shape
    • Bonds with other “cell walls”
    • In plants: composed of cellulose fiber
  • 4. Plasma Membrane = Front Door
    • Inside “cell wall”
    • Support and Protection
    • Barrier between “cell” and its environment
    • Controls what goes in and comes out
    • In plants: thin layer of protein and fat
  • 5. Lysosome = Dexter
    • Attack intruders
    • Break down food particles
    • In plants: made up of digestive enzymes
    • Uncommon
  • 6. Nucleus = Laptop
    • Stores important information
    • In plants: spherical body containing many organelles
  • 7. Vacuole = Refrigerator
    • Filled with food and water
    • Stores nutrients
    • In plants: large, membrane-bound space
    • Typically one per cell, may be more
  • 8. Amyloplast = Bread Cabinet
    • Stores starches that provide energy
    • Smaller than “vacuole”
    • Found only in starchy plants such as fruits and tubers
    • Gives sugary taste
  • 9. Chloroplast = Jimmy John’s Delivery Guy
    • Use energy to make food
    • Deliver food to “cell”
    • In plants: contain chlorophyll, giving plants a green color
  • 10. Endoplasmic Reticulum = Stairs
    • Provides transportation of materials throughout cell
    • In plants: network of tubes and membranes
    • Smooth & Rough ER
  • 11. Ribosomes = Katie, Roommate
    • Small bodies
    • Synthesize proteins
    • In plants: composed to RNA-rich cytoplasmic granules
    • Freely moving or attached to ER
  • 12. Golgi Body = Ann, Roommate
    • Packs proteins and carbohydrates into “vesicles”
    • “ Vesicles” then exported from “cell”
    • In plants: flattened, layered sac-like organelle
    • Resembles stack of pancakes
  • 13. The End
    • Special thanks to all those who made this PowerPoint possible:
    • Ribsomes……..….Katherine Beatty
    • Golgi Body………….Ann Nickelson
    • Lysosome………….Dexter the kitty
