A Grocery Store is like a Cell- Floor/Cytoplasm

The Floor is like the Cytoplasm

The cytoplasm is a transparent gelatin like substance that fills up all the space inside a cell. It constantly flows and its purpose is to hold all the organelles inside the cell. The floor of a grocery store takes up the entire space within the walls. It holds all the other things on it, such as the shelves (vacuole) or the mitochondria (cash registers). Although the floor of a grocery store is not gelatin like, it serves the same purpose as the cytoplasm and has the same location.
