Edible Animal and Plant Cell 3D Model
The students will use the cookie as a base for their cell model. They will either shape it as a plant or animal cell. Each item will represent and organelle or part of the cell. After studying the differences between plant and animal cells, and the difference between eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, the students will make 3D models. They have worked on vocabulary and will use the correct names for each part and tell their function.
Some examples of the items that can be used for the organelles are:
Colored frosting and cream cheese frosting-Cytoplasm
Kit Kat Minis, Mini Twix, Mini Tootsie Rolls, -Mitochondria
War Heads, cookies, cake roll, and brownie bites-Vacuoles
Sour gummy worms Sour Patch Kids, and Chiken inb a Biskit-Golgi Apparatus
Mini M&M’s, Skittles, and Sugar Babies-Ribosomes
Swiss Rolls, Zebra cakes, cake roll, and Toffifay-Nucleus
Fruit candy and Chewy candy-Chloroplast
Twizzlers and chewy candy-Cell Wall
Sour Extremes-Cell Membrane
Chewy Air Heads and Jelly beans-Lysosomes
Twizzlers or Sour Extremes-Cell membrane
Skittles and M&M’s-Nucleolus
The students will also make a key for their cell with names, shapes, and colors. They will also present their cells to the class and give an oral presentation.
