Cell Analogy – Mall Essay.
Cell Membrane – The cell membrane protects the inside of the cell from outside containments, keeps the cell in contact and maintains its shape. This relates to mall security guards. They’re job is to protect the mall, make sure everything is intact and everybody is safe. Without the cell membrane, containments could enter, the security guards do the same. Without them, bad people or things could happen in the mall.
Cell Wall – The cell wall provides structural support and protection to the cells, and prevents water from entering the cell.
The walls and exterior of the mall do the same job. They prevent water, snow and hot or cold air from entering. They also offer structural support.
Cytoplasm – The cytoplasm is a jelly like material that fills the cell and surrondings of the organelles. Food and oxygen move through the cytoplasm to the organelles. This is like the floors and ceilings in the mall, they hold the mall together.
Mitochondria – The powerhouse of the cell.
It provides energy to be used by the cell. In a mall this would be the food court. Poeple get tired and hungry so they go to the food court to eat and gain energy or sit down and relax.
Ribosomes – They help make proteins. There are many of these organisms in cytoplasm. In a mall, the ribosomes would be the food because food has proteins in them.
Nucleus – The nucleus controls the cell and its activities, such as growth. In a mall, this would be the manager. The manager keeps everything in control. He/she controls the functions and activities in a mall as well as a cell.
Vacuole –The vacuole stores excess food, waste and other substances. In a mall this could be the storage room, storing signs or any excess mall materials, or it could be a garbage can, storing any excess waste that shoppers and employees produce.
Lysosomes – The job of the lysosomes is to clean up the cell if it is damaged. Then recycle, patrol and kill invaders. In the mall, this would be the janitors. A janitor cleans up any waste or garbage that employees and shoppers make such as spills, dirt and dust.
Golgi Apparatus – This part of the cell transports messages through out the cell. In the mall, this would be the sale papers. The messages get distributed to the employees through out the mall.
