CELL ANALOGY
THE ANIMAL CELL IS BEING COMPARED TO A FOOTBALL
TEAM.
BY: MYA FREAKIN BROWN AND CALEB FREAKIN MILLER

ANIMAL CELL=FOOTBALL TEAM
A CELL IS LIKENED TO A FOOTBALL TEAM BECAUSE, LIKE A CELL, A FOOTBALL TEAM HAS MANY PARTS TO IT WITH DIFFERENT FUNCTIONS.

CELL
MEMBRANE=OFFENSIVE
LINE
THE CELL MEMBRANE IS A SELECTIVE BARRIER FOR THE
CELL. IT DETERMINES WHAT CAN ENTER OR LEAVE THE
CELL, SO IT PROTECTS THE CELL FROM ITS
SURROUNDINGS. THE OFFENSIVE LINE, LIKE THE CELL
MEMBRANE PROTECTS THE QUARTERBACK AND
HALFBACK FROM THE SURROUNDING PLAYERS ON THE
OTHER TEAM.

CYTOSKELETON=COACH

THE CYTOSKELETON GIVES THE CELL SHAPE, ANCHOR
MANY OF THE ORGANELLES IN PLACE, AND DIRECT THE
MOVEMENT OF ORGANELLES. THE COACH KEEP THE
PLAYERS IN PLACE AND DIRECTS THEIR MOVEMENT BY
GIVING THEM DIFFERENT PLAYS.

CYTOPLASM=FOOTBALL
FIELD
CYTOPLASM IS THICK FLUID THAT SURROUNDS ALL OF
THE ORGANELLE IN THE CELL. IT TAKES UP THE WHOLE
CELL THAT IS A MIXTURE OF WATER AND DISSOLVED
SALTS, IONS, AND ORGANIC MOLECULES. THE
FOOTBALL FIELD SURROUNDS THE PLAYERS AND TAKES
UP THE WHOLE STADIUM.

GOLGI
APPARATUS=RESERVES
PROTEINS ENTER THE GOLGI APPARATUS SO THAT
THEY CAN BE MODIFIED AND STORED. EVENTUALLY,
THE PROTEINS AND SENT EITHER INSIDE OR OUTSIDE
OF THE CELL. THE RESERVES IS LIKENED TO THIS
BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE PLAYERS STAY AND WAIT TO
BE PUT INSIDE OR OUTSIDE OF THE GAME.

LYSOSOMES=DEFENSIVE
LINE
LYSOSOMES CONTAIN ENZYMES THAT BREAK DOWN
LARGE MOLECULES TO BE USED BY THE CELL. A CELL
CONTAINS A VARIETY OF LYSOSOMES THAT CONTAIN
DIFFERENT ENZYMES THAT SPECIFIC
MACROMOLECULE. THE LYSOSOMES PROVIDE AN
ACIDIC ENVIRONMENT SO ENZYMES CAN BREAK
DOWN LARGE MACROMOLECULES WITHOUT
DISTURBING THE FUNCTIONS OF OTHER MOLECULES
IMPORTANT TO THE CELL. THE DEFENSIVE LINE
BREAKS DOWN THE OFFENSE ON THE OTHER TEAM
AND CREATE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR THE
QUARTERBACK, WHO IS IMPORTANT TO THE TEAM.

VACUOLE=LOCKER ROOM
VACUOLES ARE ENCLOSED SACS THAT SERVES AS A
VARIETY OF STORAGE FUNCTIONS. FOOD VACUOLES
STORES FOOD AD NUTRIENT AND WATER VACUOLES
STORE WATER, IONS, AND MINERALS. THE LOCKER ROOM
SERVES AS A STORAGE FOR A VARIETY OF THINGS THAT
BELONG TO THE FOOTBALL PLAYERS.

MITOCHONDRIA=QUARTER
BACK
THE MITOCHONDRIA IS ENCLOSED IN A LAYER OF TWO
MEMBRANES. THE FOLDS IN THE INNER MEMBRANE
PROVIDE ADDITIONAL SURFACE AREA ON WHICH
IMPORTANT REACTIONS OCCUR, ALLOWING
MITOCHONDRIA TO DO MORE WORK. THE
MITOCHONDRIA IS THE POWERHOUSE OF THE CELL AND
GIVES THE CELL ENERGY. THE QUARTERBACK IS THE
POWERHOUSE OF THE TEAM. THE QUARTERBACK IS IN
BETWEEN THE LINEMEN WHICH ALLOWS THE
QUARTERBACK TO DO MORE WORK.

RIBOSOMES=PLAYS
RIBOSOMES MAKE PROTEINS AND RELEASE THEM TO
THE AREAS THAT REQUIRE THEM. THIS IS LIKENED TO
PLAYS. PLAYS GET THE PLAYERS WHERE THEY NEED TO
GO AND THEY MAKE TOUCH DOWNS.

WELL THAT’S ALL FOLKS
