Eukaryotic Cell Organelles
A strainer represents a cell membrane; because of its holes, it has openings that can allow materials both in and out of the cell and would keep organelles from getting out. This would only allow select materials to enter and exit just like a cell membrane.
Fake Halloween spider webs act as a network of protein fibers and represents how the cytoplasm holds organelles in place.
Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER)
An envelope plays a big part in packaging a letter just as the rough ER packages ribosomes and proteins.
A tupperware stores food in a household similar to a vacuole storing materials and water in a cell.
Ribosomes attach proteins just as a staple attaches papers together.
A remote represents how the nucleus is the control center of the cell, much as a remote can control a TV.
Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER)
The smooth ER makes products like hormones and lipids just as a toaster makes products like toast.
Wrapping paper represents the packaging of the golgi apparatus with ribosomes like a present being wrapped.
Just like the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell, a solar panel can be the powering of a house.
One function of a lysosome is that it collects garbage or waste like a trash can.
The legs of a chair are like microfilaments because a leg supports its chair and the microfilament supports the organelles in the cytoplasm.
A shoe represents a microtube because it carries people around and supports them. A microtubule is what moves the organelles in a cell much like shoes.
Chloroplast (plants only)
Chloroplasts convert light energy into sugars the cell can use just like an outlet converts electricity into a lamp to create light energy
Cell Wall (plants only)
Cough medicine protects one from infection just as the cell wall does the same thing to the contents inside the cell
