Cellular models transform the microscopic unseen into everyday reality. These cells represent plants or animals—not the telephone variety!
Cells come in almost any shape—disks, cubes, boxes, chopsticks, pea pods, globs, blobs, and splats! Find a detailed illustration of a plant or animal cell that interests you. Learn the names and functions of each part. Here is one way to make a 3-D replica of the cell to demonstrate what you learned.
Mold a handful of Crayola Model Magic® compound into your cell’s shape. With your fingers, sculpt the cell walls, nucleus (the cell’s control center), and other features. Use different colors of compound so each part shows up well.
Add Crayola School Glue to represent the cell’s cytoplasm (matter between the cell membrane and the nuclear envelope). Air-dry your model at least 24 hours.
Glue construction paper to recycled cardboard. Glue your model in the center. Cut paper strips. Glue one end to each part and the other end to the base. Write the names of each part on the base.
