3D Plant Cell Project - Also 3D Animal Cell Variation


to do a 3D plant cell model as a project for school? You aren't alone.
This is one of the most popular and common projects. Fortunately it is
pretty easy to complete and fun to put together.
All you need for your own 3D plant cell model is a few ordinary
household objects. Additionally a few food items will be needed to
illustrate the parts of the cell. We like to use Jell-O in our 3D cell

google_ad_client = "pub-1921013097920440";
google_ad_width = 250;
google_ad_height = 250;
google_ad_format = "250x250_as";
google_ad_type = "text_image";
google_ad_channel = "";

Here are the REQUIRED ITEMS:
A plastic bag water large bowl square Tupperware style container (For the Plant Cell Only) cardboard scraps cut into oval shape small buttons 1 plum 1 small grape 2-4 small oranges - mandarin or clementine style 2-4 peas 2-4 average grapes pasta lasagna style table pepper Jell-O mix - Lemon works best
1. Place your plastic bag in the square plastic Tupperware
container. The plastic bag needs to line the entire container as a cell
membrane. This will create a block-like plant cell shape when completed
and the plastic container represents a cell wall. For an animal cell,
simply open a plastic bag and lay it on a table. No tupperware needed
for shaping.
2. The Jell-O needs to be mixed with warm water in a large bowl.
Follow the instructions on the box to see how much water to use for the
Jell-O package. Lemon is probably the best flavor to use because it is
the the most transparent.
3. Fill up the plastic bag(s) with the warm Jell-O liquid. It should be near the top of the container.
4. While the Jell-O has not hardened or firmed up, add the smaller
parts of the cell to each bag. These are also called the organelles.
What does each piece of fruit represent?
The plums represent the nucleus, the small grape represents the
nucleolus, the mandarin oranges represent mitochondria, grapes
represent chloroplasts (only for plant cell in square container), some
pieces of lasagna represent endoplasmic reticulum, small pieces of
cardboard in oval shapes represent Golgi body, small buttons represent
vacuoles, pepper particles represent ribosomes.
5. Close each plastic bag with a twist tie and place your cells in
the refrigerator until the Jell-O sets up. This will not take place for
several hours or longer.
Please make sure you have adult supervision while creating this 3D
cell. It will be messy and you don't want to cause any accidents.
Have fun with this project. If you would like to submit photos of
your completed please feel free to contact us and we may post them here!

You can use styrofoam ball cut in half.  Then you can find items around the house to glue yo your model to represent the organelles with the cell.  Make sure if you are making an animal cell, ut should be "square" and and animal cell is more round.  Be aure to label all organelles appropriately.  Candies can be used for some organelles.  Example:  Hot tamales for the mitochondria; gummy worms to make a network of golgi bodies,  a fire ball for the nucleos, etc.  Be creative!   Additionally, you can get some yellow pudding and place on a plate cytoplasm, and add candies to the pudding, use a key to decipher what candy is what organelle.  Have fun!

Making a 3d animal cell model can be a fun science project for parents and children to complete together. Here is a fun way to make an edible 3d animal cell model.

Prepare a light colored Jello using slightly less water than required by the directions (follow the directions on the package for cooking instructions). Then put an open plastic bag inside a sturdy container (like a pan or bowl) and slowly pour the cooked Jello into the bag. Ensure you leave enough room in the bag for additional cell components that will be added later.

When the Jello is almost completely set, open the bag and add the additional components to the cell. Other components that can be used for the cells features are m&m’s, hard candies, gumballs, etc.

Easy bake a cake and decorate it with candies and colored icing and make it look like an animal cell, that's what I did. The teacher took a pic of it and then we ate it.

Just use a see-through plastic container and use jello and candies (jelly beans, nerds, candy buttons, m&ms, gobstoppers, ect.)
