Cell Craftivity - Animal Cells and Plant Cells
Make Science come alive with this fun 3D cell craftivity. This resource contains BOTH the animal cell and the plant cell activity.
This cell craftivity has the students coloring the organelles according to the legend given, labelling the organelles, drawing their own organelles, explaining the difference between plant and animal cells, and explaining the functions of the different organelles.
There are two different sets included in this resource – one plant cell and one animal cell. Each set also comes in full sheets and half sheets if you are limited in your photocopying. Print only the set you need (the questions / directions are the same for both). Students will finish the writing and coloring (6 pages in total) before assembling the finished cells (assembly instructions on next page).
I have also included a blank outlines for each cell so you can add your own question, or have your students come up with their own question. Blank outlines can also be used as a cover in case you wish to assemble the cells into a flipbook style, rather than a 3D craftivity. You do not need to fill these in to assemble the cell, they are only there if you wish to add your own questions.
A rubric is also included for formative or summative assessment. I have provided a picture answer key for the color coding and the labelling.
Completed craftivities are a fabulous way to decorate your classroom or bulletin boards. It’s a great way to have your students build a display they are proud to share.
You have three different options for printing (you want your cells to be sturdy enough to stand on their own):
- Print on white construction paper
- Print on cardstock
- Print on regular paper, then glue onto construction paper and cut out around the cell shape
For easier completion, be sure students complete each page BEFORE they assemble (cut and glue) the craftivity.
