Cell Analogies

Horse Show


The horses feed is like the mitochondria because it supplies the energy for the horses.

Endoplasmic Reticulum

The arena is like the endoplasmic reticulum because it provides a path for the horses and riders.


The concession stand is like the ribosomes because it provides energy for the riders and spectators.

Golgi Bodies

The golgi bodies are like the horses when they are bought by someone else and "shipped" out to their new owners.


The vacuoles are like the tackstalls because that is where we keep everything at a horse show.


The lysosomes are like the manure bucket wich we have to fill with urine and manure from the horses stalls.

Cell Membrane

The stall walls are like the cell membrane because it acts as a barrier so the horses dont get out of their stalls.


The nucleus is like the show board because they control everything that happens at the show.


The cytoplasm is like the air at the show filling all the “empty” spaces.
