Cell Analogy

A Cell is like a movie theater because...

The people selling the tickets are like the cell membrane

They are in charge of who comes in and out and the cell membrane is in charge of what comes in and out

The trash cans are like the lysosomes

They get the trash and break it down just like the lysosomes do

The food counter is like the vacuole

It stores the food for the people and it stores the food for the cell

The manager is like the nucleus

It controls what movies it plays and the nucleus controls what happens in the cell

The movies are like the mitochondria

Without the mitochondria the cell would have no energy an die and without the movies the movie theater would go out of buisness

The building is like the cell wall

It keeps the shape of the cell and without the building the movie theater would fall down
