  1. 1. CELL ORGANELLES Town Analogies to help remember the function of some animal organelles
  2. 2. Cell membrane <ul><li>Surrounds the cell & gives protection to the cell </li></ul><ul><li>Allows things to enter and exit the cell </li></ul><ul><li>Think of a town gate. If the town was all inside a fence and gate. The town gate allows people to enter and exit the town. </li></ul>
  3. 3. NUCLEUS <ul><li>Contains the DNA </li></ul><ul><li>Controls the activities of the cell </li></ul><ul><li>Think of a town hall. The town hall plans and carries out activities for the town. </li></ul>
  4. 4. CYTOPLASM <ul><li>The fluid like substance inside the cell that holds the organelles </li></ul><ul><li>Think of the town limits. Everybody that is consider a resident of a town is inside the town limits. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Endoplasmic Reticulum <ul><li>Found right outside the nucleus </li></ul><ul><li>Can have ribosomes attached or not (smooth) </li></ul><ul><li>Its main job is to help transport things within the cell </li></ul><ul><li>Think of the roads in a town. The roads help with transportation within the cell . </li></ul>
  6. 6. RIBOSOMES <ul><li>Can be found on the ER or free in the cytoplasm </li></ul><ul><li>Help with protein synthesis </li></ul><ul><li>Think of a factory. Products are made in factories. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Golgi Complex <ul><li>Sac like organelle </li></ul><ul><li>Used for packing and transporting material within the cell </li></ul><ul><li>Think of the postal system. It helps pack and ship products from one place to another inside the town </li></ul>
  8. 8. Mitochondria <ul><li>The powerhouse of the cell </li></ul><ul><li>It provides the energy for the cell </li></ul><ul><li>Think of the power lines that run through a town. They provide energy to the people of the town </li></ul>
  9. 9. Vacuoles <ul><li>Storage containers within the cells </li></ul><ul><li>Think of a storage unit. Some people within a town will keep extra stuff in a storage unit. </li></ul>
