Cells Analogy Mural Project This project is an opportunity for you to show your understanding of cells. There are two components: a mural created by your group and a report written by each student. The Group Task: 1. Create an analogy between a cell with all its parts and organelles, and something in real- life. Analogies to choose from include: a sports team, a city, a house, a factory, or a vehicle. 2. Make sure that each cell part/organelle has a match in your analogy, meaning that they have similar roles/jobs. 3. Create a mural that explains/demonstrates how your analogy is like a cell. This product should: a. Display how each part of your analogy is like its match in a cell. b. Use the entire piece of paper. c. Use a variety of media (magazines, drawings, newspaper, construction paper, limited text, photos). d. Have a background that is cohesive. e. Use your creativity! 4. Structures to include Cell membrane Nucleus RER SER Ribosomes Mitochondria Lysosomes Golgi apparatus Cytoskeleton Plastids or Vacuole Individual Tasks: 1. Be responsible for a portion of the organelles on the mural. 2. Write a report describing the parts of the mural and why they are like organelles in a cell. Resources: 1. You can use the textbook, or any other book that describes cell parts and their functions. 2. You can use Internet resources to find information about cell parts and their functions. I have some posted on the class website. 3. You can use your class notes (although they will not be enough alone).
