This week we have been talking about cells.
All organisms are made up of a single cell or multiple cells. Most of these cells are so small that you need a microscope to see them. Cells are covered by a cell membrane and can come in many different shapes.
To show the boys what cells can be made from, we made an animal cell out of a cake,
and a plant cell from jelly.
Plant cells are surrounded by a thick, rigid cell wall.
We completed a mini cell book which you can download by clicking the link below:
