Animal Cell Model

For Caleb's Biology class he was assigned to either make a plant or animal cell 3D model. The suggestions given were to use food, styrofoam, or candy.  I didn't want to have to go to the store and by any supplies.  Caleb agreed to look around the house and see what he could use, and he had a brilliant idea to use an old Ethernet card he had saved in his room. 

He needed a barrier for the outside to represent the plasma membrane.  I found an embroidery hoop in my craft items that worked perfectly.  We found the box in our stash of boxes, used green construction paper, string that we had, and he labeled everything.

In his Biology class at co-op he had to present his project.  His teacher said his was the most creative.  I love how this project turned out!  And it didn't cost us a cent.
