Students will design and create a 3-dimensional model designed to show an analogy between it and a cell.
Students will also complete a sketch (on 2’ X 4’ butcher paper) that shows an a
This is a project that teaches students the structure and function of the parts of an animal or plant cell by comparing the organelles to different parts of a city. It is a take home project. It is a three page document.
This worksheet includes great picture representation that makes it easy to understand the parts of a cell! It goes perfectly with the Part of a Cell Power Point presentation - which is 35 slides. :-) ENJOY!

This .zip file pack introduces the concept of the cell and its organelles to students by describing the structure and function of each. The PowerPoint presentation details the animal cell and compares the function of each organelle to the parts of a city. Using this city analogy helps keep student
Students will match the parts of the city (underlined in the story) with the parts of the cell (listed on the data table).
The data table includes the following organelles: mitochondria, ribosomes, nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, golgi apparatus, protein, cell membrane, lysosomes, and nucleolus.
In this activity, students navigate an online interactive titled "Cell City", which is a great visual that compares plant and animal cells to a city. The webquest lab report guides students through summarizing the main functions of each organelle, sketching the organelle, creating analogies for eac
In this cell review worksheet, students will compare the parts of a cell to a city. Each city feature, such as the post office or town hall, is compared to various organelles of the cell. Students must identify which city feature represents each organelle and justify their answer in an organizer.
I work with ESE/LD learners. One of the requirements at my school is to ensure there is a monthly activity so our students are able to sharpen their PR skills when working with each other.
This activity focuses on parts of an animal cell for learners to identify. Students are able to work throug
This is a complete unit to teach the function of the important cell parts. It starts with a Bill Nye video guide, then moves into a simple cell parts crossword. There is also a cell parts PowerPoint presentation and student note sheet. Then there is an introduction to the city parts and matching the
Students create a "Cell City." They first complete a chart comparing a list of cell organelles to different building, locations, etc. in a city, town or village. Next students create a plant cell and label the organelles on the diagram. Finally, students draw (or create a 3D representation) of their
Included in this product is the directions for a group project. Students will create a diagram of a city using the different organelles as part of the city such as, power plant being the mitochondria. There is also a graphic organizer students complete as a group to help organize their ideas and exp
Students will show their understanding of the cell structures and their functions by creating a blueprint of a store to compare to the organelles of a cell.
Includes student assignment sheet with instructions and rubric.

This project is based on having the students create a city and make comparisons to organelles of an eukaryotic cell. For example, perhaps they could design the town hall as the nucleus and the mail carriers could be lysosomes.
It includes the following:

This is a cell city project developed for students to make a models of a cell and the organelles that they can relate to.
Every living cell operates much like a city does. Each organelle in each cell performs a job that allows the cell to function properly as a whole unit. In a city, there are many
A fun project for middle school or upper elementary!
Have construction paper and white paper? You're ready to give this project to your students!
This is a great project to give your students if you need a fast and easy way to assess their learning. Adjust to your specific students as needed- so
Students independently work on comparing the organelles to a city. Then in groups collaboratively develop their city and draw it on large whiteboards to be displayed around the room.
I would appreciate if you would leave feedback for this item. Thank you!

How long can you survive? Using the zombie apocalypse format as a starting point, students will determine what structures are needed for a city to prevent being overrun by zombies. They will model the structures of a cell as structures of a city. Using peer feedback, students continue to refine thei
Since students have a difficult time with the abstract idea of the cell organelles, I feel they learn them through analogy. i developed this project for students to apply the functions of cell organelles. I adapted this from other activities. It worked well!!!
This fun project let's students take cell structure and function to the next level! It provides students with creative outlet to compare the function of cellular organelles to various parts of a city (or school, airport, mall, car, island, the sky's the limit!). Students can pick something that's
Students compare the parts or organelles of a plant or animal cell to the important jobs of a city. The nucleus is the city hall, the endoplasmic reticulum is the postal service or UPS and deliver the "packages" (ribosomes) around the city.
After the students compare the organelles to parts of a
This is a project I used with my classes that turned out well. It had students compare the functions of the parts of a cell with things in a city. They could choose whatever setting they liked. I had things like Spongebob, Harry Potter, and even World War 2. I'll post some pictures of finished p
This is a worksheet that tells the story of Cell City, an analogy of an animal cell and a city. There is also a section on this 1-page worksheet for students to match the parts of the cell with the parts of the city. My 4th grade Montessori students really enjoyed this activity; however, it can be
After background research on cellular function and classroom discussion, students will test their skills by reading a passage about a fictional city and making comparisons to functional parts of the cell. This is the preview before compleing the analogous cell models activity.
Give your students a creative outlet by using these activities designed for interactive notebooks! The major focus in these activities is the comparison and contrast of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, as well as plant and animal cells.
