Cell City Analogy - Kyrene School District

Cell = City 6th Grade Science Think of a City How does it operate? Who protects the city? Who runs the city? How does the city manage its trash? How does the city get food? How does the city get its power? How do you know when you are in the city limits?

A cell can be compared to a city! Each part of the cell has its own function or purpose. The parts of the cell can be compared to the parts of a city based on their similar purpose. Lets compare! Cell Part A. B. C. D. E. F. G. Cell Cell Membrane

C. H. D. I. E. F. J. Create a City Cell Analogy You can use a city or any other place (amusement park, country, the mall). Can be a fictional place. Steps of the Project: Step 1: Brainstorm on the cell parts and what you can draw to represent each part. Use the

Parts of a Cell Page to help you. Step 2: Draw a picture of your city. Label each cell part of the city with a letter A through J. Step 3: Create a legend or map key in the corner and explain what A J represent. Ex: D = Town Hall Step 4: On a separate piece of paper, in complete sentences, write your analogies. This will explain why you selected each part of your city to represent the part of the cell and what function they both share. Think of the place you want to draw. Be creative. Create an analogy for each cell part. Write your ideas on your Parts of a Cell page. A. Cell = City B. Cell Membrane = City limits C. Cytoplasm = Environment

D. Nucleus = Town Hall E. Nuclear Membrane = Police F. Ribosomes = Factory G. Endoplasmic Reticulum = Roads H. Golgi Bodies = Post Office I. Mitochondria = Power Plant J. Lysosomes = Recycling Plant Create your map and legend. Draw your city. Pencil first, then crayons or colored pencils. No markers. Label each part on your city A J. Circle the letter. Create a map legend or key in the corner of your map which lists the letters A-J and identifies the name of each place.

Example. A= Far Far Away; B=city limits A I C D G B H J E F Legend A: Far Far Away B: Brick Wall

C: Environment D: Shreks Castle E: Puss-n-boots Security Service F: Gingerbread Mans Cookie Factory G: Roads H: 3 Blind Mice Delivery Service I: Dragon Power Service (DPS) J: Donkey Recycling Explain why you chose the items to represent each cell part. List the letters A-J For each letter: State the name of the city place The name of the cell part it corresponds to Why you selected that item to represent the cell part Must be in complete sentences. Example: B: The town hall represents the nucleus because its function is to control the

towns activities On notebook paper. Final Product: Your analogies must be in complete sentences and stapled/glued to the back of your map. Your map/picture must be neat, colorful, correctly labeled, and have a legend or key. Use pencil first then color. Be creative! Have fun with it. Past examples included underwater cities, prehistoric cities, a skate park, amusement parks, etc Cell Part City Analogy Purpose
