A cell is like...

  • a computer.
  • a restaurant (the waiters are like the endoplasmic reticulum, delivering protein to different parts of the cell).
  • a slaughterhouse.
  • an NBA basketball team (Karl Malone is like the cell wall, protecting and supporting the cell).
  • the Roman Coliseum (lions are like lysosomes, digesting food & waste products)
  • the United States (the government is the nucleus, and the people are the cytoplasm).
  • a factory.
  • the human body (the epidermis is like the cell wall).
  • a city.
  • a supermarket.

Metaphors contributed by my eighth graders.
