Cell project by Mrs. Clardy's Biology classes: 
Students created plant and animal cell models.  They used a variety of materials – from clay, salt dough, play dough, wood, craft items, Styrofoam, … to cake batter and gummy worms!  They did a WONDERFUL job!  After they created the cell models, they labeled each organelle within the cells.
