AT HOME CELL MODEL PROJECT

DUE DATE:  January 25, 2019

THIS WILL BE WORTH A TEST GRADE. 

Part 1.  ANIMAL   OR PLANT CELL MODEL: Create a model of an animal or plant cell.  Here are some ideas for creating your   animal or plant cell model:

  •   Draw a poster with a picture of your cell.
  •   Create a model out of clay or other materials.
  •   Make an edible cell. 🙂  You can bake a cake, make it out of Jello – use your imagination.
  •   Check with your teacher if you have another idea.
  •   PLEASE NOTE:    YOU MAY NOT MAKE PHOTOCOPIES OF AN ANIMAL OR PLANT CELL AND GLUE THEM TO A POSTER.  YOU MUST CREATE YOUR OWN MODEL.

 Your   model needs to be neat and colorful and as realistic as you can make it.

 

Part 2.  Written Explanation: Write a paragraph telling me the parts of your cell.    You should also describe each part and tell me what they do to help   the cell work.

  •   Somewhere on your model there should be flags or arrows or a key to identify each of the parts you labeled.

 

  •   Animal Cell – Should include the following parts… cell membrane, cytoplasm, vacuole,   nucleus, mitochondrion

 

  •   Plant Cell – Should include the following parts… cell wall, cell membrane, cytoplasm,   vacuole, nucleus, mitochondrion, chloroplast, and chlorophyll

Check your written explanation carefully for spelling, punctuation, and capitalization.
