Name: ___________________
Cell Analogy
Outcome: Students should be able to relate the main features and
properties of cells to their functions
Analogy: a similarity or comparability
Your Choice!
Choice 1: Image analogies.
1. Choose either a plant or animal cell.
2.) Use the internet, a magazine, or a newspaper to find a picture of an
everyday object which you think has a similar function (or use) as each
cell structure (organelle). Remember function is not the same thing as
structure. You are looking for something that reminds you of what it
DOES, not what it LOOKS LIKE
3.. Paste your cell colouring of your chosen plant or animal cell in the
middle of a poster-size piece of construction paper.
4. Connect your pictures to each organelle.
5. Type out on a separate piece of paper an analogy to show the similarity
between the function of the cell part and the everyday object to show
me that you understand the connection. Be sure to explain the reasoning
behind your analogies. You must write an analogy for each of the
organelles.
Example: The nucleus is like a brain because it controls and
coordinates the activities of the whole cell in the same way the
brain controls and coordinates activities of the body.
Choice 2: The Written Story – All analogies must be part of a larger unit
1. Think of something in real life that you think is similar to how either a
plant or an animal cell works.
Example: Something that has smaller parts in it that work together
to make the larger structure function.

2. In well written paragraphs, explain why you think your item from real
life functions like a cell does. Provide a written analogy for each of the
organelles and explain how they are similar in function to a part of your
real life object.
3. Staple your plant or animal cell to the back of your story.

ANALOGIES
I am strongly able to
demonstrate the main
features and properties
of a cell to their
functions through
insightful and creative
analogies for each
organelle. This
assignment was
completed on time, and
to the best of my
ability.
I am strongly able to
come up with my own
ideas and to find
similarities or make
comparisons. I do not
use ideas that my
friends used.

I am moderately able to
demonstrate the main
features and properties of
a cell to their functions.
A few of them could
have more similarities to
the organelles and I
could have put in more
effort.
I am minimally able to
demonstrate the main
features and properties
of a cell to their
functions. I still do not
have a clear
understanding of the
organelles and their
functions, and my
assignment required a
lot more effort.
I am able to come up
with my own ideas
and to find similarities
or make comparisons.
I am starting to be able to
come up with my own
ideas and to find
similarities or make
comparisons. I used
some ideas that my
friends used though.
I am minimally able to
come up with my own
ideas and I find it
difficult to make
similarities or make
comparisons.
