The students will build a 3-dimensional cell using Play-doh or similar material. The activity is designed to allow students to work in groups but each student will have a very specific task in the design of the cell. The students will construct most major organelles in the cell and have to create a key that gives the function of organelles.
The design of the lesson allows each student to excel at their own ability. All learning styles will benefit from this hands-on, visual activity. The instructions are designed to encourage students to work independently with little teacher involvement.
