Cell Model Project
Background: Too often cells are portrayed as two dimensional, flat objects on a paper, but really they are three dimensional, flexible units.
Procedure: For this project you will build your very own 3-D model of a plant or animal cell. You can use any materials you like but it should not be too big, or small enough to sacrifice detail. Please just use things around your house. There is no need to go out and drop $20 on materials.
Requirements: For your project you need to include and label all of the organelles listed below. They should be large enough to see. You also need to include a sheet with your organelles listed and write each of their functions next to them.
Tips: Use pages 68-75 in your books for help in labeling and constructing. The internet will also be helpful.
Due Date: The cell model along with the cell sheet will be due Tuesday, 28 November. That’s the Tuesday after Thanksgiving break. This will be worth 100 points
Make Sure You State Whether You Are Doing A Plant Or Animal Cell
Cell Membrane Ribosomes
Cell Wall (plant only) Golgi Complex
Endoplasmic Reticulum Lysosomes (animal only)
Chloroplast (plant only) Vacuoles
Here are links for plant cell and animal cell diagrams. To find more run a Google image search for "plant cell" and "animal cell"
Here is another good resource - This page has an organelle list with functions.
