Let Them Eat Cell! A Eukaryotic Cell Model

Let Them Eat Cell! A Eukaryotic Cell Model Objective: To identify the location, structure, and function of the major organelles of a plant or animal cell and describe what would happen if those cell structures were missing. Background: Cells are everywhere! They are the building blocks of everything that is living, but theyre so small, its hard to remember theyre all around us. To see cells up close and personal, scientists often create

3-d models from drawings and photographs. Whats more fun than making an extra-large model of a cell? Eating it when youre done! Getting Nerdy, Let Them Eat Cell! A Eukaryotic Cell Model What You Do: You are a super scientist who has the daunting task of creating a realistic cell model made completely of edible things. To help you create your model, you will create a blueprint of your cell and a table detailing the items you will use for construction. You must follow all directions

completely in order to achieve the highest grade possible. In your journey, you will not only create the edible model, but you will also write a paper describing the main parts of your cell. This paper must be catered to your audience of young children who are learning about plant and animal cells and how they work. Your paper must explain to your audience the locations, structures and functions of cell organelles in a way that is fun and in a language that is easy to understand.

What You Do: Your project consists of FIVE parts. For each of the five parts (depending on your cell selection), you must include the following cell organelles. CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING: ANIMAL CELL ROUND shape Cell Membrane Ribosome (free or on ER) Lysosome DNA Cytoplasm Endoplasmic Reticulum Vacuole (few & small)

Nucleolus Mitochondria Golgi Bodies Nucleus Cell Membrane Ribosome (free or on ER) Lysosome Chloroplast Cytoplasm Endoplasmic Reticulum

Vacuole (one & large) Cell Wall Mitochondria Golgi Bodies Nucleus PLANT CELL SQUARE or RECTANGULAR shape Getting Nerdy, Let Them Eat Cell! A Eukaryotic Cell Model

What You Do: Part 1: The Paper EACH INDIVIDUAL must turn in a typed or neatly handwritten paper explaining all of the organelles discussed in class. The formatting of the paper must include: 1. An introduction in which you introduce your project and the type of cell you chose. 2. A paragraph on each of the organelles consisting of at least FOUR sentences: - One sentence describing the type(s) of cell this organelle is found in eukaryotes, prokaryotes, or BOTH?

- One sentence on the organelles structure (its appearance and location) - One sentence on the organelles function (its job) - One sentence explaining what would happen to the cell if the organelle was missing or absent from the cell. 3. A concluding paragraph in which you describe your thoughts on the project. ***********PAPERS SHOULD HAVE 13 TOTAL PARAGRAPHS*********** Getting Nerdy, Let Them Eat Cell!

A Eukaryotic Cell Model Part 2: The Key and Blueprint EACH TEAM must create a key for your edible cell model so that others can tell what cell part (organelle) your food represents. Use the pictures of cells and organelles in classroom and online textbooks and any cell notes to help you decide what foods would best represent each cell part. Food items should look similar to the structure of the organelles - i.e. a nucleus is round

and has a nucleolus inside so a jawbreaker cut in half with the small round center exposed could represent the nucleus and nucleolus. Getting Nerdy, Let Them Eat Cell! A Eukaryotic Cell Model The Key Create a chart or table that states both food part and the organelle or cell part each food represents. This can be typed or neatly handwritten. Organelle

The Blueprint Create a drawing of what your cell model will look like when you have created it. It should be a drawing of a cell as the cookie/cake/foods chosen. The foods and which organelle the food represents must be clearly shown and labeled. You must make sure that organelle location is appropriate. This will act as your blueprint as you construct your cell model. Placement of organelles/food items must match between your blueprint and model.

Getting Nerdy, Let Them Eat Cell! A Eukaryotic Cell Model Part 3: The Model and Identifying Labels This is the fun part! You need to build your cell model. Each part needs to be made of the food part listed on the data table. You will be graded on how accurate your model is and how close your actual model was to the drawing in your blueprint - i.e. if the nucleus was in the middle of the drawing then the food nucleus needs to be in the middle of the model. The model must contain two parts in order to receive full credit. These parts are: Labels:

Each food item must have a label. The label must state on one side what organelle the food represents. The other side must have bulleted points that state the structure and function of the organelle. Labels must have a support like a flag so they can be fastened into your food items. For example if you used a toothpick: (Front) Cell Membrane Getting Nerdy, (Back) Determines what goes in and out of cell

Let Them Eat Cell! A Eukaryotic Cell Model Edible Cell: This is the actual model of the cell. You will be graded on how close the actual model is to the blueprint made in Part 2 and you will be graded on content. You need to make sure that each item that was written in your data table is represented in the actual cell model.

Model Here are some examples of WHAT NOT TO DO: Getting Nerdy, Always use ONE BIG cookie or cake rather than several small

ones Getting Nerdy, Please dont begin to eat your model until your teacher has checked it off Getting Nerdy,

Use things youd actually LIKE TO EAT! Getting Nerdy, Dont buy a premade pizza! Add toppings to your

cooked PLAIN pizza using your blueprint! Getting Nerdy, Labels should relate to the size of your model Getting Nerdy,

JELLO is hard to work with AND, No one will want to share this with you Getting Nerdy, Fruit can also be a difficult

and messy medium to work with Getting Nerdy, Be sure to transport your model in an appropriate container to ensure it will arrive intact

Getting Nerdy, Just dont do THIS Period. Getting Nerdy,
