This resource is a powerpoint presentation explaining the parts of the cell, using the metaphor of a school. I've removed the photos of some individuals at the original school, so you'll have to fill them in with photos from your own. This resource is part of the Developing Biology course which contains units on Microscopes; Biochemistry; Cells; Cellular Transport; DNA; Photosynthesis and Respiration; Mitosis and Meiosis; Genetics; and Evolution.

Great idea to use the different infrastructure of a school to represent certain parts of plant and animal cells. The slideshow at the end does a great job of summing up all differences between the two types of cells. However, the only issue I observed is that if the school represents a eukaryotic cell what can be used to represent a prokaryotic cell? Another comparison that can be used for this activity is to use a jello cup and add candies that resemble cell parts into the jello, without destroying it, to see them suspended in gelatin like a live cell.
