Pearl City, Illinois – Pearl City fourth graders have been studying cells and living things. They have been learning about the different parts of plant and animal cells, and the differences between the two.
They made a model animal cell in class out of Play-Doh and other various items, then each student had the assignment of creating a model plant cell out of anything they wanted.
Students decorated cakes, brownies, and cookies to represent the cell. Others were made out of clay, cardboard, beads, jello, and other items.
One student even made a pizza with toppings to represent the parts of the cell.
The projects were on display for the 3rd, 5th and 6th graders to come view.
