Styrofoam, cardboard, and clay: Grade 7D's Homemade Cells

by Lea Biesenthal

After delving into cell structure with the help of microscopes, Class 7D embarked on a three-week task to construct cell models using various objects. The goal was for students to apply their knowledge and imagination in creating their models, allowing unlimited creativity. Students initially discussed the most suitable materials for their models, generating numerous ideas. Over the next three weeks, scissors, clay, cardboard, paint, and Styrofoam were shared, and they collaborated enthusiastically on both conceptualizing and implementing their ideas. On the day of submission, we marveled at the creative models. Finally, we held a small exhibition in class, allowing everyone to admire each other's cell models.
