Projects!!!!! You either love them or hate them. There is a definite love/hate relationship with them. Can I just say how much I appreciate the clip artists on Teachers Pay Teachers. You are making this teacher's job so much easier. We have an animal cell project due and we decided to head on over to Pinterest and get some ideas. We knew that animal cells were circular in shape and we immediately thought pizza. Who doesn't like pizza? We found some ideas and decided to make it our own.
First , we ordered pizza. Sounded good to me on a Friday night and got a box in return. We then went over to Teachers Pay Teachers and purchased some clip art and went to work.
We printed out pieces of the pizza crust in sections on cardstock. We cut them out and put them together like a puzzle. A little resizing and working it together is all it took. It looked like this.
Next, we decided what parts of the pizza would represent the nucleus, vacuole, chloroplast, and cytoplasm. At this point in our science studies that as many parts as we needed to label. Pepperoni became the nucleus and onions became the vacuoles. We added the other elements we haven't been studying yet to the animal cell to make it look more authentic.
Next, we added the fun pizza chef from Creative Clips and made a menu (key) of the parts we were required to do for this project.
