Way back at the beginning of the school year (September 27th to be exact) we studied Cell Structure and Function. A fun way that the students reinforced what they learned was by creating Jello Cells. In this group project the students either focused on an animal cell or a plant cell. The animal cells were made with red gelatin and put in a round container. The plant cells were made with green gelatin and put in a rectangular container. The students had fun picking out different items to represent each organelle in their cell.
