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.<p/> <b><p>This resource is part of the <a href="http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Coll_rmlucas/DevelopingBiology"> Developing Biology</a> course which contains units on Microscopes; Biochemistry; Cells; Cellular Transport; DNA; Photosynthesis and Respiration; Mitosis and Meiosis; Genetics; and Evolution. </p></b>

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.
