why is a plant cell good at is job
A plant cell is good at its job because it has many different components that work together to make sure the plant is functioning properly. [ Think of it as a factory: Every part of a cell needs to perform its job in order for a cell to function properly. It?s like workers or machines in a factory; everyone needs to do their job to keep the factory working. If you take away one part of the
cell or a specific machine in the factory the rest of the cell or factory may not be able to get their jobs done ultimately leading to self-destruction. The Nucleus is like the boss?s office of the cell; it is made up of three parts. The office (nuclear envelope), the important information locked inside (chromatin) and The Boss (the nucleolus). The Boss is in charge of the functioning of the cell. The cell wall is like the exterior walls of the factory; it helps the cell retain its shape and stops its volume from increasing. The plasma membrane is like the interior wall of the factory it is full of doors and windows that let some resources (molecules etc.) in and out. The cytoplasm is kind of like all the space inside the factory; it?s where everything takes place. A lysosome is like a worker who goes and finds all the resources (food molecules) in the factory (cytoplasm) and puts them in a special container (a food vacuole), then the lysosome worker pumps digestive enzymes into the vacuole which breaks down the food molecules. A vacuole is a special container that can be as large as needed and hold many different substances depending on the plant cell?s needs. Plastids are usually storage units in the factory (cell) that hold things like carbohydrates, starch etc. But you get some plastids that get promoted into being chloroplasts which help in photosynthesis. The mitochondria are a bit like the power generator in a factory- they turn fuel (food) into energy the factory (cell) can use. Then of course there is the endoplasmic reticulum which is like a postal system within the factory (it carries chemicals from one end to the other). We also have the ribosomes which are attached to the ER. ]
