Cell : Volleyball Team
-Kendall JonesD. Dyer
A cell is like a Volleyball Team because…
A cell has many different functions
and parts just like a volleyball team
has many players that are better in
one area of play than they are
The Nucleus is the
control center of
the cell like a
volleyball coach has
control over the
team and how
successful they are.
The cell membrane
regulates what goes
in and out of the
cell like the assistant
coach monitors the
rotations and
positions of every
player on the court.
The cell wall is like the
libero because the cell
wall protects, structures,
and supports the cell and
the libero protects the
ball from going out of
bounds or saying the ball
when it goes in areas that
are not ideal for the
setter to set the ball or
the hitter to hit the ball.
*The Libero is the player that wears a different color jersey and plays the
back row at all times.*
The Endoplasmic
Reticulum is like the
server because it is a
passage for proteins
to move through the
cell. The server
serves the ball to the
other team creating
passages of force
from one player to
the next.
The Golgi Apparatus
packages and ships
proteins like the
setter receives
(packages) the ball
from the passer then
sets (ships) it to the
hitter. The setter is a
very important part
of the team.
The Mitochondrion is
like a hitter because
the mitochondrion
produces energy and is
also know as the
power house. The
hitter produces energy
from the swing of its
arm to kill the ball on
the other side. The
hitter is know as a
powerhouse if he/she
has accurate hitting
The vacuole is like the
part of the team that
sets of the bench
because it is the
support system that
gives encouragement
and takes the players
water when a time
out is called and
when the game is
being played.
Ribosome's are like
the team that is on
the court because it
produces proteins for
the cell and the
players that are
playing are producing
points to win a
Plant Cells
• Cell Walls are on the
• ChloroplastPhotosynthesis
• Cell Respiration and
Photosynthesis both
• Square shaped with rigid
cell wall
• Green due to Chlorophyll
• One large Central Vacuole
Animal Cells
•Cytoskeleton on inside
instead of cell wall
•No Chloroplast
•Cell Respiration occurs
•Can be any shape because
of flexible membrane but it
is mostly round
•White and Pink due to the
color of blood
•Small Vacuole
