This project encourages students to formulate their own analogy to track the function of each organelle within a eukaryotic cell.
Biology I Cell Analogy Project For this project, you are going to develop an analogy between all the organelles of the cell and another object or place everyone is familiar with. This can be a great help in remembering the function of all those organelles! Here’s an example: The cell is like an assembly line factory. …The boss of the factory would be like the nucleus, because he makes all the decisions about what the factory produces. …The blueprints and designs of the factory’s products would be like the DNA within the nucleus. …The nearby power plant that produces all the electricity used by the factory would be like the mitochondria that produces ATP for the cell. Try to think of your own, unique analogy and assemble it into a Powerpoint presentation to show your classmates. Use the rubric below for a guide on how to create your presentation. You will be graded on the following: Points Possible 1. Cover Page 5 - Your Name - The name of your analogy - The name of this class and period 2. Explain your Analogy 10 - What are you using to represent the entire cell? - Are you representing a plant cell or an animal cell? - Show a picture of a cell and a picture illustrating your analogy example. 3. Nucleus 15 - Explain the function of the nucleus and all its parts. - Explain what part of your analogy represents the nucleus. - Include the nucleolus, chromatin, nuclear envelope, and nuclear pores in your analogy. - Show a picture of your analogy. 4. Organelles 20 - List each of the organelles, describe its function, and what represents this organelle in your analogy. - You should include the following organelles: - Plant cells: Mitochondria, central vacuole, chloroplast, Golgi, Smooth ER, rough ER, ribosomes, cytoskeleton - Animal cells: Mitochondria, vacuole, lysosome, Golgi, Smooth ER, rough ER, ribosomes, cytoskeleton 5. Cell Membrane 10 - Describe the cell membrane and what represents this in your analogy. - If you are using a plant cell, also describe plasmodesmata and cell walls. 6. Speaking 5 - Present to the class, speak clearly. 7. Organization / Appearance 5 - The powerpoint is well organized, easy to read, and formatted. Total Points Possible 70
