Cells are the building blocks of life!
The following story should help you to remember the names of the cell parts:
Plans were drawn up to build a new block of prison cells.
The cells were to be built on top of each other.
What’s in all cells?
A nuclear (nucleus) power plant was cleared out to make way for the new cells
The nucleus is found in both plant and animal cells.
Members of all brainy groups (membrane) were all thrown into the new jail.
The membrane is found in both plant and animal cells.
When this is taught in a classroom it would be important to stop here and summarise what you have learnt so far:
- Cells are the building blocks of life
- Cells have a nucleus
- Cells have a membrane
The first thing they were asked to do was to take their ribbons out (ribosomes),
Ribosomes are found in both plant and animal cells.
Next, they were warned about talking to three oversized fellow convicts known as the Mighty Con Trio (mitochondria), who were very powerful and often recruited new prisoners to help with illegal activities.
Mitochondria are found in both plant and animal cells.
The members of brainy (membrane) groups, eventually settle in when guards site a plasma (cytoplasm) TV in their prison cells.
Cytoplasm is found in both plant and animal cells.
Cells are the building blocks of life.
All plant and animal cells have a
