Cell compared to a Farm
Clio Follmer & Josue Roan (1P)
Cell membrane; Fence
Considering the cell membrane is a thin layer around the cell and controls what goes in and out, a fence would be a perfect example. The fence of a farm controls how the animals are to move about, it keeps them in. The farmer keeps a fence around his farm to protect it from vermin and keep animals in.
Golgi app; Farmer's house
The golgi apparatus is basically a packing plant that everything has to go through to be shipped to the correct area in a cell. In the farmer's house, any sort of materials and tools are there, and any sort of problem is fixed in the house. It's then put back outside to function.
The cytoplasm of a cell contains all aspects of the cell. Everything basically "floats" around in the cell. Though nothing "floats" around the farm, the acres on the farm hold all items on the farm. The animals, the barn, farmer, his house. Everything listed before is on the farm's acres.
