As the students learn about cells, and the various functions that are carried out within them, each are tasked with researching different organelles and contributing in creating a large 3-D model, to display for the rest of the school.
With only the slightest push, they’re off creating their own organelles to add to the display, utilizing what they have learned and adding in their own creative spin. Some use clay to mold the intricate details of the mitochondria, the power house of the cell. Others take a simpler approach, scattering beads across the cell to represent ribosomes, the cell structure responsible for making vital proteins.
Along the way, you can see the students coming to realize how every part of the cell comes together to make one whole, functioning unit, almost like a city!
Here we have a look at a couple of students working alongside Mr. DeJesus to glue their individual parts to the cell. Needless to say, it was all coming together with flying colors!
