Genetics, Part Two-B: Plant Cell Model

For the plant cell, I used a cookie pizza. We spread out the cookie dough on a baking sheet to make it rectangular, just like plant cells. Sam then used candy to represent the various cell components. You could use whatever you have on hand.
Plant Cell

Next week we will be making models of Mitosis with three colors of pipe cleaners.
