Making Plant and Animal Cells

Students used graham crackers, cookies, icing, cereal, and candy to design plant and animal cells.   They were very creative with cell part representations.   Round cookies were used as the animal cells.  Rectangular graham crackers were used for the plant cells. 

The malted milk balls made the nucleus.  Fiber cereal was the mitochondria.  

These students grouped Kix together to represent chloroplast  in the plant cells.

Broken pieces of graham crackers were used to show the cell wall of the plant cell.  

These students used Kix cereal to show the cell wall and a piece of broken graham cracker to represent the large vacuole.  The best part was students got to eat them!  They loved making and eating these.
