There is a book in a library that explains to you how to make a really delicious dinner. This book is the gene...the DNA. You go to the library and copy the recipe down on a piece of paper. This copy is transcription, and you've made a copy of the recipe (your copy..your piece of paper is RNA, mRNA). You take your piece of copy paper to your kitchen to make the dinner. Your kitchen is the ribosome - you use the copied piece of paper (mRNA) and the kitchen (ribosome) to make the delicious dinner (the protein). What you do in the kitchen is called translation. What you did in the library is called transcription.
