Cell Analogy

(50 pts)  Cell Analogy:

1) Describe a cell and its organelles’ functions by writing an analogy (25 pts).  For example:  

  • If the cell were a factorythe nucleus would be the ______ of the factory because ________.

  • the ribosomes would be the _________ of the factory because the ribosomes _______________________,

  • the mitochondria would be the __________ of the factory because the mitochondria _________________, ..................)  

  • Include the following 12 organelles:  nucleus, mitochondria, chloroplasts, endoplasmic reticulum, ribosomes, lysosomes, golgi apparatus, vacuoles, cell membrane, cell wall, microtubules, microfilaments. (25 pts)

2) Please include a drawing or model of your analogy (25 pts).

Criteria Attempted (60) Acceptable (75) Admirable (85) Awesome (100)
Analogy Writing Content Most of the 12 organelles are part of the analogy but many of the reasons don't seem to make a connection. All 12 organelles are part of the analogy but 3 or 4 reasons don't seem to connect. All 12 organelles are part of the analogy but 1 or 2 reasons don't seem to connect. All 12 organelles are part of the analogy and all the reasons make sense.
Drawing Content 5 or more organelles are not worked into the drawing. All but 3 or 4 organelles are drawn into the picture and double labeled. All but 1 or 2 organelles are drawn into the picture and double labeled. Every single organelle is drawn into the picture and double labeled (for instance: office/nucleus)
Writing mechanics Analogy is in paragraph form with multiple mechanics errors. Analogy is written as above with 3 or more spelling and grammar issues. Analogy is written as above, but a few spelling and grammar errors are found. Analogy is clearly written as modeled above with no spelling and grammar mistakes.
Drawing Mechanics Drawing has major issues and is messy without detail. Drawing or picture is a bit rushed and somewhat sloppy. Drawing or picture is mostly neat and detailed. Drawing or picture is neat and detailed.
