                                              Systems - Using Cell Analogies


Section 1: Analogies :

DIRECTIONS: You will create an analogy (comparison) for a cell using one of the following options: city, house, human
body, space station, school. Your analogy will include a written description of each city/house/body/station part and how it
is similar to its corresponding organelle.

Choose one of the following four options by circling it:

A. Cell City               B. Cell House               C. Cell Body      D. Cell Space Station       E. Cell School

In your analogy, make sure that you clearly indicate the function of the organelle, as you compare it to a part of your
analogy that has a similar function.

Each analogy below is worth a total of 2 points (1 point for each response).

    1.    In my analogy, the nucleus would be like the ______________________ because he/she/it is responsible
         for:_______________________________________________ and the nucleus is responsible
         for:_____________________________________________________________

    2.    In my analogy, the cell membrane would be like the _____________________ because he/she/it is responsible
         for:____________________________________________ and the cell membrane is responsible
         for:_________________________________________________.

    3.   In my analogy, the lysosome would be like the _____________________ because he/she/it is responsible for:
         _______________________________________________and the cell wall is responsible
         for: _______________________________________________________________.

    4.   In my analogy, the ribosomes would be like the ___________________ because he/she/it is responsible for:
         _______________________________________________________ and the ribosomes are responsible
         for:________________________________________________________


    5.   In my analogy, the mitochondria would be like the _______________________ because he/she/it is responsible
         for: ________________________________________________and the mitochondria is responsible
         for: __________________________________________________.

    6.   In my analogy, the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) would be like the ___________________ because he/she/it is
         responsible for: ____________________________________________and the endoplasmic reticulum is
         responsible for: ____________________________________________.


    7.   In my analogy, the cell wall would be like the _____________________ because he/she/it is responsible             for:
         _____________________________________________________ and the cytoplasm is responsible                           for:
         ___________________________________________________.

    8.   In my analogy, the golgi would be like the __________________________ because he/she/it is responsible
         for: ____________________________________________________and the golgi are responsible
         for: ____________________________________________.

    9.   In my analogy, the vacuole would be like the _____________________ because he/she/it is responsible
         for:_________________________________________________and the vacuole is responsible
         for: ______________________________________________________.

Answer the following Continuous Learning Questions:


         1.    Through the process of digestion, large mixtures of nutrients that we call “food” are broken down into their
              smallest building blocks. Identify the two ways that the body breaks down food. (1 points)
