Why Lesson Planet?
Students create three-dimensional cell models. They may choose to make either a plant or animal cell but must use a Ziploc bag as the cell membrane, slime for the cytoplasm, and strawberry baskets for the cell wall if making a plant cell. They may choose what they wish to represent all the other organelles of the cell and must include a key. The project is completed by mathematically comparing the size of the cell they created to an actual cell.
