Eukaryotic Animal and Plant Cell 3D Model-Explanation


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.
