Mrs. Spencer’s fifth grade students learned about the parts of a cell and their functions.
After learning about what a cell does, they made edible models that show what a cell looks like.
They used a sugar cookie base and added different candies to represent each part of a cell. The parts of the cells they made were: Cell Membrane, Cytoplasm, Nucleus, Vacuoles, Ribosomes, Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum, Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum, Golgi bodies, and the Mitochondria. The fifth graders had a fantastic time making and learning about the basic unit of life!
