Jello Cells

Thursday, August 20, 2009

We are studying zoology this year. To see our lesson plans, go here. Today we made an animal cell model out of jello and candies. It was fun even if the end product looked kind of weird! To see the instructions for this idea, go here. Here is Zach mixing the lemon jello...this is the cytoplasm of the cell. Here are boys putting in the different parts of the cell...there was a nectarine for the nucleus...gummy worms, round jelly beans, raisins,etc. for the other parts. See the above instructions for ideas for the different types of candies to use. I did have to make some substitutions because we didn't have certain types of candies available to use (i.e. folded ribbon candy).Here is "our cell"!
