A cell has many working parts that allow it to perform its overall function. In that way a cell is analogous to a high school, which also has numerous working parts/departments that allow the school to better function. In this worksheet students will compare the structures of a typical eukaryotic cell to their high school as a way to better familiarize themselves with the inner workings of cells. I like to use this worksheet as homework the night after we discuss organelles. This way the material is still fresh in their minds as they are still forming associations. The next day, I like to have students share their analogies.
