Biology in 1º ES

Students from 1º ES have been working in a "Cell Analogy Project".


* Relate cell organelles functions to real world systems. 
* Illustrate the systems of a working cell in terms of the systems of the real world.
* Produce a product that is neat, clear and creative.


- Each student will work independently

- Choose a real world working system and decide how each organelle of the eukaryotic cell can be compared to the components and functions of the real world system. Some ideas are:  School, Hospital, City, Mall, Country, Restaurant, Lab, Salon, Construction Site, Prison, etc.

- Illustrate the real world system and the cell you are comparing it to. This must be on poster board or a blank paper and neatly drawn by you. It must be colored and show very high effort. Not artistic? Trace diagrams, make pictures on the computer…get creative!

- The cell image and real world system image both must be labeled.

- On a separate sheet, attached to the front or back of your poster board, on a three column include the organelle, the analogous structure, and a sentence that explains the analogy.

Make sure you have all the organelles included

Organelles to be included and MUST be numbered in this order:

1. Cytoplasm
2. Cell Wall (plant cells only) 
3. Endoplasmic reticulum (rough and smooth can be same structure) 
4. Golgi Apparatus
5. Lysosome 
6. Mitochondria
7. Nucleus
8. Plasma Membrane 
9. Ribosome
11. Chloroplasts (plant cells only)

Here is an example:
