                         PLANT AND ANIMAL CELL PROJECT
       As we begin our studies over the structures and functions of plant and
animal cells I encourage you to begin brainstorming ideas for the project at the
end of the unit.

       You will choose to represent a plant or an animal cell. After that decision
is made, you will then need to decide which way you would like to present your
cell. You can create an edible cell or a box cell. Included in this packet is all the
information needed to help you make your selection and also the rubrics to show
how you will be graded.

       Part of your grade depends on your understanding of the structures and
functions of the cell you have selected. Make sure to keep this packet in a safe
place. Your cell project is due on Thursday, October 20th !!!!

       Good luck and enjoy your adventure to discover the functions and
structures of plants and animals cells.
                                        ENJOY!

                                  Edible Cell Project
                       Rules and Guidelines for edible cell model:

      The model and all cell structures must be edible.
      It is to be three dimensional, taking the shape of an actual cell.
       The model is NOT to be a flat icing drawing on top of a cake.
       The size of each organelle must be in proportion of each other as they are in
        the cell.
       You must label each organelle and provide a key that explains what each
        organelle does. (toothpicks with sticky labels work well for this)

       SUGGESTIONS: if you use jello or pudding keep in mind that candies may
       dissolve after a period of time. So, you should wait until the morning to place
       these parts in the cell.



                                   Box Cell Project
                        Rules and Guidelines for box cell model:

       The model and all cell structures must be materials found in your house, not
        food.
       It is to be three dimensional, taking the shape of an actual cell.
       The model is NOT to be a flat drawing, it must be 3-D.
       The size of each organelle must be in proportion of each other as they are in
        the cell.
       You must label each organelle and provide a key that explains what each
        organelle does. (toothpicks with sticky labels work well for this)

SUGGESTIONS: Make sure your organelles are secure before you move it.
