Plant Cell>>Factory A:Nucleus>Main Office
The main office of a factory regulates all activities, and controls everything that happens inside the factory, as does a nucleus in a Plant cell.

B:Cell Membrane>Guard
The guard of a factory protects the factory from harm, and checks trucks, that are coming in, for anything that could harm the factory, as does the cell membrane of a
Plant cell. C:Nucleolus>Boss
The boss of a factory controls the office and has a high authority in the factory, that is much like the nucleolus because it is the main part of the Nucleus.

D:Lysosomes>Custodian
A custodian takes care of the restrooms in a factory, and he kills all the bacteria in the factory workspace, that is just what a lysosome does for a cell.

E:Central Vacuole>The Restrooms
The restrooms flush waste out of the factory and into the sewers, like a restroom, the central vacuole gets rid of waste inside the cell.

F:Mitochondria>Generator
The generator generates all of the energy for the factory, that is the exact thing that the mitochondria do for the cell.

G:Golgi Apparatus>Packager
The packager prepares everything for transporting, the golgi apparatus packages macromolecules for transport in a cell.

H:Cell Wall>Walls
The walls of a factory keep everyone in the factory safe from any dangers outside, like the walls of a factory, the walls of the cell do the same thing.

I:Ribosomes>Packager
Just like the golgi apparatus the ribosomes package something inside the cell.
There are many different types of packagers in a factory, ribosomes “package” protein.

J:Endoplasmic Reticulum(smooth)>Electrician
The electrician builds things that help the factory. The endoplasmic reticulum creates steroids and lipids to help the cell function.

K:Vesicle>Forklift
Just like a forklift in a factory, the vesicle transport substances in a cell.

L:Chloroplast>Vending Machine Filler
A vending machine filler provides the snacks
