Day 14 of What’s the Word June
Word of the day: cumulonimbus
On Monday night my daughter told me that she had to create an edible model of a plant cell for a school project Then she casually said,”Oh yeah, it is due on Thursday.”
No biggie, ha! So, I had two days to help plan the plant cell and make sure it was edible. After tossing around a few ideas we decided a pancake was the way to go. It is large, soft, round, and yummy. She made labels with the cell information and then I glued them onto toothpicks.
First thing is first, make a pancake.
Carefully add on each food item.
Stick the toothpick flags into the correct areas.
Great job, Emily!
Here is the list of food items we used:
Pancake – cytoplasm
Green licorice – cell wall
Raisins – cell membrane
Peanut butter cracker – nucleus
Banana chip - chloroplast
Nutella - vacuoles
Thankfully it is a rain free morning in Olympia (no cumulonimbus clouds in sight) so she was able to safely carry her edible project to the school bus stop.
Let's hope the plant cell made it to class in one piece.
