Purpose: The purpose of this project is to make a 3D model of a cell in order to better understand the parts and workings of a cell.
Using household items make a three-dimensional model of a plant or animal cell that meets the criteria listed below. (Sample items: cereal, balloons, gummi worms, mints, fruit slices, dried fruit, matches, gum balls, peanuts, rope licorice, jelly beans, sesame seeds, other candies, toothpicks. Craft packages also may work: clay, beads, pipecleaners..etc)
Choose what type of cell you will build, a typical plant or animal cell. Include this label somewhere on your model.
Create a KEY or label in some way each part on your model and its function.
|Cell Project Rubric|
|Category||Scoring Criteria||Excellent (3 pts)||Satisfactory (2 pts)||Minimal (1 pt)|
|Craftsmanship||Model is creative, shows effort|
|The model is 3 dimensional|
|Model stays together, not too messy or difficult to move around|
|Cell Parts||Key, legend, or labeling is easy to use to identify parts on the model|
|Functions of cell parts included (accurate)|
|Appropriate material is used so that it looks like the cell part it is modeling|
|Parts of organized within the cell in their appropriate places|
|Written Word||Basic grammar, spelling on key and any other writing used in model|
Do you have photos of cell models? I would love to include them in my gallery!
