Animal and Plant Cell Models

Check out our Cell Models~  Students created their own model of a plant or animal cell!

I love the recycled CD.  

Great labeling!  

Plant and Animal Cells are part of my frameworks.  My students learned the parts of the cell and their functions.  Students compared and contrasted animal and plant cells.  Once students recognized the cells and their parts, they then built models of a plant or an animal cell.  My students’ creativity came out while building models of their cells.   I was so impressed with their hard work!  Check out my unit on Plant and Animal Cells!

Engaging Students in Science: When Your Science Lesson Comes Alive!

Today we had the one of the coolest experiences ever.  We watched a Monarch caterpillar emerge from an egg!  The kids were just arriving when I turned on my computer, the day before we were comparing a Monarch egg to a Swallowtail egg on the overhead microscope.  I noticed the egg looked a little different~Our Science Lesson then Came ALIVE!
