Revision of Unit 1: Cells in Action

animal cell cake

This is a model of an animal cell made from cake showing the different organelles of a typical cell. The nucleus is shown by the freckle, mitochondrian was shown by the purple jelly beans, the lysosomes were the yellow jelly beans, the centrioles was the musk sticks which were then placed on the cytosol (icing), the vaccuole was shown by two freckles placed upside-down, the endoplasmic reticulum was made with yellow snakes and the rough endoplasmic reticulum was made with yellow snakes with 100’s and 1000’s laces on top to make the ribosomes and for the golgi compex was made by placing a pink snake on the icing.

This activity was enjoyed by the year 11 biology group. Making a model of a cell meant that we could relate to what a real one looked like. This made it easier to remember the names of parts of the cell and what their function was.
