This week 7th graders at LNMS are creating edible cell models. To see cells up close and personal, scientists often create 3-d models from drawings and photographs. What’s more fun than making an extra-large model of a cell? Eating it when you’re done! Students worked in teams to create the models, made of entirely edible parts, that must include all parts of an animal or plant cell. In addition the groups had to write a paper describing the main parts of the cell and their function. Here is a sample of a finished cell from Ms. Alvarado's class made by Anyssa Avelar and Adrianna Oehring.
