Cell Analogy Assignment - DOC by cuiliqing


									                                 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

    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
           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

   1. You can use the textbook, or any other book that describes cell parts and their
   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).
