Students Create 3D Animal & Plant Cells

In Mr. Shannon’s Biology class, sophomore students created three-dimensional (3D) edible cells as part of their quarter final projects over the animal and plant cells.

Students were given a scoring rubric, outlining the requirements for each type of cell. Students created their 3D models to accurately represent the cell organelles and structures that would be present in each type of cell, including the cell membrane, nucleus, and ribosomes, just to name a few.

The students completed a lab over the differences in cell structures between animal and plant cells before beginning their projects. Students then applied their newfound knowledge in creating their culinary cellular creations.
