The organelles of a Plant Cell

And how they are like my house...

The cell wall is like the house siding.

The cell wall is a stiff and rigid membrane that supports and protects the cell.

The cell membrane is like my door

The cell membrane controls and regulates what goes in and out of the cell.

The nucleus is like my parents and I

The nucleus acts as the central storage area for genomic DNA. ( the brain )

No offense to my brothers but they are nothing like the nucleus.

The cytoplasm is like the air in the room

The cytoplasm is a gel like substance that holds the organelles in place
