Cell Analogy Project
In order to really understand how all of the parts of a cell work, it might be helpful to use an analogy. An
analogy is when you compare two seemingly different things and point out some things that they actually do
have in common. You are going to have to choose something to compare to a cell. Some good ideas include a
factory (but you can’t use that , see example below), a jail, an office, a sports team/field/court, a car, a
restaurant, or even Colony High School. You can choose something else, but make sure you think it through
before you start. This project should be on paper LARGER than notebook paper, and should be in full color.
The following criteria will be graded:
/15pts—Include a labeled picture of what you are comparing your cell to (This is NOT a picture of a cell, but
of a soccer field or Pizza hut, or a car etc.)
/15pts—Include a key that tells which organelle compares to which part of your analogy.
/20pts—Give the function of each part of your analogy, and why it is like the organelle.
Please choose ONE type of cell (plant or animal), and check off each organelle as you add it in your chart:
Plant Cell
Animal Cell
 Nucleus
 Nucleus
 Cell wall
cell membrane
 flagella
cell membrane
 Chloroplast
 cytoskeleton
 Golgi body
Endoplasmic reticulum
 Golgi body
Endoplasmic reticulum
 vacuole
 Contractile vacuole

The Cell as a Factory:
Factory Part
Central Office
Manages activities, initiates production, controls activities of factory
Assembly Line
Assembles raw materials to manufacture items
Packaging & Shipping
Packs products for distribution
Golgi Bodies
Conveyer Belt
Moves product within the factory
Endoplasmic reticulum
Produces energy for the factory
Storage area
Stores materials for later use
Collection center
Breaks down and recycles used parts
Allows for things to enter and leave the factory
Cell membrane
Bricks and Steel
Construction materials that keep the factory from collapsing
Trucks/ 18 Wheelers
Move the factory when it needs to relocate or open a new branch
Due to Murphy’s Law, (and in order to avert technical difficulties, computer glitches, time warps, black holes, gremlins, natural and unnatural
disasters) please do not wait until the last minute to complete or print your project. Late projects will not be accepted!!!!!
