3d cell assignment sheet 2017

This project will be due Friday 10/27/17. Sample projects are displayed in class at the front tables.  Please feel free to check them out and ask questions. 
Group work? Working with a partner is a great idea, but it is not required.  Feel free to work with a student from any period.  If you choose to work with someone, you both MUST turn in your own cell.  They can be very similar (same materials), but you must produce your own!
Do I need to buy materials? Not necessarily.  You can use materials that you already have at home, such as bottle caps, shoe string, pasta, shoe box, tennis balls ...
Can I use flat paper to represent an organelle? No! The entire cell should be made of 3-Dimentional material.
What is the difference between a simple cell model and cell analogy model? A simple cell model is creating a replica of an actual plant or animal cell.  If you choose to create a cell analogy, you will create a model of whatever analogy you create in class Friday 10/13.  If you would like to see examples of cell analogies please check out the following website: https://mrsbambury.weebly.com/cell-analogy-projects.html
Can I pick which cell I would like to create (Plant or Animal)? Yes! You may complete a model of a plant or animal cell. Please remember that you can earn up to 10 points EXTRA CREDIT if you decide to do both.
When can I turn it in?  I will not take any projects until the week of October 23 - 27th.  Although the project is due Oct. 27th you may turn it in Oct. 23 - 26th for 10 points EXTRA CREDIT.
Please email Ms. Tagger if you have any questions.
