  • 1. Have your plant cell and eat it too. By Mackenzie Atcheson Ebony Adams Claria Stephens
  • 2. The Cell We decided to do a plant cell.
  • 3. The Nucleus This is the nuclear membrane is made of gummy lifesavers because this protects the cell like the nuclear membrane. This is the nucleus it is made of a popcorn ball because the nucleus is round. This is the nucleolus it is made form a gumball and we picked this because it is rounded to like the nucleoid.
  • 4. The functions of the nucleus. The nucleus is the brain of the cell. This gives the cell the directions of what to do. The nuclear membrane protects the membrane. The nucleoid is the main part of the cell that gives directions.
  • 5. The Cell Wall This is the cell wall we made it form Twizzlers they surround the cell like the cell wall The cell wall is semi permeable it gives structure to the plant cell and it still allows nutrients and waste to come in and out of the cell.
  • 6. The Cell Membrane The cell membrane is made out of sour spaghetti because it is thinner than the cell wall and they surround the cell. The cell membrane is the second protective layer in a plant cell but the only one in an animal cell the. The membrane is semipermeable which means that some nutrients can come in and go out.
  • 7. The Vacuole This is the vacuole it is made from blue gummy worms because they resemble the vacuole. The vacuole is found in both plant and animal cell but it is very small and very few in an animal cell. In a plant cell the vacuole is a big blob that stores water and food for the plant.
  • 8. The Chloroplast This is the chloroplast it is made out of green gummy worms and green sour spaghetti because it resembles the cell. The chloroplast is only found in plant cells and they make the cell green. This is where photosynthesis occurs in all cells.
  • 9. The Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum This is the smooth endoplasmic reticulum or ER for short. It is made from blue sour spaghetti because it resembles it. The function of the smooth endoplasmic reticulum is the organelle that carries every thing else outside of the cell. It is connected to the nucleus and leads to the cell membrane and in plant cells also to the cell wall.
  • 10. The Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum This is the rough endoplasmic reticulum it is made from blue sour spaghetti and candy pearls. This resembles it structurally. The rough endoplasmic reticulum carries only proteins to the cell wall and cell membrane. It is surrounded by ribosomes. It doesn't carry anything else.
  • 11. The Ribosomes The ribosomes are made of candy pearls because they resemble them a lot. The ribosomes particles that consist of RNA, they are found in large numbers in the cytoplasm make proteins
  • 12. The Mitochondria This is the mitochondria. It is made of gummy worms and we chose it because it looks like it. The mitochondria are the power plant of the cell. This provided energy to all of the cell and it Is the respiration in the cell. It has a doubled membrane that folds in to make it look like waves on the inside.
  • 13. The Lysosomes This is the lysosome We made it out of orange skittles and they resemble the lysosomes structurally. The function of the lysosomes is to destroy unwanted materials. The lysosomes of the cells are like suicidal sacs they take in anything that doesn't belong in the cell they surround it and self destruct.
  • 14. Golgi Apparatus This is the golgi apparatus it is made for life saver gummies. We chose it because it resembled it. The Golgi apparatus is where secretions and intracellular transport.
