• Design and create the city including all 9 cell parts listed below either as a one-dimensional drawing (using your own drawings or pictures from the computer), or a 3-D model. (You may use any materials you bring in—like boxes or clay, etc.)
• Label each city part with its name and the name of the cell part that has a similar function
• On a separate piece of paper, write a sentence for each cell part explaining why you matched it up with the city part you chose.
Graphic Organizer and helpful hints are included...
