Cell Analogy Poster Project
Your mission: You will create an analogy of the cell’s organelles to something that
relates to your identity. You will be required to complete a drawing of the analogy that
represents all the organelles in the cell and relates to your identity. You will have 2 full
class periods to complete this project. Use your time wisely as well as your imagination.
Your mission will include:
1. Project is to be completed on a poster board that I will supply.
2. Drawing of your cell analogy. An aesthetically pleasing drawing that is colored and
includes all the areas of the cell as they relate to your analogy, labeled.
3. A legend or key (in chart form) that lists all the organelles (9) and their “analogy
partner” as well as the importance or role in the analogy. See below for an
Organelle Analogy Area Importance or Role
4. Two paragraphs explaining:
a. Why you chose each place to represent each organelle in your cell analogy
b. Why you chose that analogy to represent you. (2nd paragraph)
Above all BE CREATIVE, NEAT and HAVE FUN! Your cell analogy can be anything you
feel REPRESENTS YOU!
