Identify type of cell (prokaryote, plant, animal, etc)
Accurately describe or show the structures of organelles and label these organelles
List of the organelles with specific functions (separate paper or on project)
Be realistic with location, size, and quantity of the organelles
Be creative, you can use any materials you want!
Possible Organelles/Structures- it depends on your cell type: (more if you can think of them!)
(1) Cell Analogies Collage:
Need = Poster paper; text with illustration of cell structures to refer to; scissors; paste; drawing pencils or pens; magazines and/or newspaper ad sections.
Step 1: Draw a plant or animal cell in pencil in the center of the poster board. Include the following structures (if you are drawing a plant cell, only include structures that are found in plant cells; if you are drawing an animal cell, only include structures that are found in animal cells
Step 2: Correctly identify your cell as a plant cell or an animal cell.
Step 3: Find out the function (or main job) each structure has in the cell. (Read your book, use the internet, or use class notes.)
Step 4: Find a magazine or newspaper picture of an everyday object that has a similar function (or use) as each cell structure (you may also draw the everyday object if you can’t find a picture). Write an analogy to show the similarity between the cell part and the everyday object. Be sure to explain the reasoning behind your analogies. (For example: “The Golgi apparatus is like a post office because it modifies, sorts and packages protein for delivery like a post office packages and sorts mail for delivery.”)
Step 5: Paste the pictures of everyday objects at the edges of the poster board. Label the pictures with your neatly written analogies and make a pointer to the correct structure in your cell drawing.
(2) 3-D Model of a Prokaryote (Bacteria) or Eukaryote (Plant or Animal Cell) Make a three dimensional model a cell. Use whatever materials you like (Styrofoam, wood, clay, etc.) Be creative!!! The cell must be at least 30 centimeters wide and long. Again, it must contain the appropriate organelles and the organelles should be identified with their functions listed! You may want to write functions on a separate page. (See your class notes, the internet, or the textbook for information on organelles.)
(3) Compare & Contrast Poster: Either Prokaryote vs Eukaryote or Plant vs
