An Analogy Project
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 cel can be compared to a city! (Or an amusement park or a story book land. . .) • Each part of the cel has its own function or purpose. • The parts of the cel can be compared to the parts of a city based on their similar purpose.
Create a City Cel Analogy • You can use a city or any other place (amusement park, a country, the mal ). It can be a fictional place. Use your imagination. • Steps of the Project: – Step 1: Brainstorm on the cel parts and what you can draw to represent each part. Use the Parts of a Cel Page to help you. – Step 2: Draw a picture, or cut and paste pictures from magazines. Label each “cel ” part of the city with a letter A through J.
Create a City Cel Analogy – Step 3: Create a legend or map key in the corner and explain what A – J represents. Ex: D = City Hal (Nucleus) – Step 4: On a separate piece of paper, in complete sentences, write your analogies. This wil explain why you selected each part of your city to represent the part of the cel and what function they both share. This page may be typed for clear presentation and is to be glued to the back of your Cel City Analogy Poster.
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. Here are some examples. Cell Part City Analogy Purpose A. Cell City Area with fixed boundary B. Cell Membrane City Limits Surrounds and border C. Cytoplasm Environment Inner space D. Nucleus City Hall Controls the activities E. Nuclear Membrane Police Force Protects F. Ribosomes G. Endoplasmic Reticulum H. Golgi Bodies I. Mitochondria J. Lysosomes
Create your map and legend. • Draw your city, or cut and paste from magazines. Pencil first, then crayons or colored pencils if hand drawing. No markers please. • 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 E J LegendA: Far Far Away (The Land of Cel )B: Brick Wal (Cel Membrane)C: Environment (Cytoplasm) F D: Shrek’s Castle (Nucleus)E: Puss-n-boots Security Service (Nuclear Membrane)F: Gingerbread Man’s Cookie Factory (Ribosomes)G: Roads (ER)H: 3 Blind Mice Delivery Service (Golgi Bodies)I: Dragon Power Service (DPS) (Mitochondria)J: Donkey Recycling (Lysosomes)
Explain why you chose the items to represent each cel part. • On a separate piece of paper, list the letters A-J. This may be typed. • For each letter: – State the name of the city place– The name of the cel part it corresponds to– Why you selected that item to represent the cel part • Must be in complete sentences. – Example: B: The town hal represents the nucleus because its function is to control the town’s activities.
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 on al hand drawn parts.• Be creative! Have fun with it. • Past examples included underwater cities, prehistoric cities, a skate park, amusement parks, etc… • Due Date is OCTOBER 15th, 2010 You may turn it in earlier if you wish.
