Project Due:   Friday, October 12, 2012

Objective: By making a 3-D model of the cell, you will become aware of the various organelles and structures which make up a plant or animal cell, together with their physiology.
Guidelines: 
  • You may choose to make either a plant or animal cell. 
  • Your cell must be 3-dimensional.  This means it needs to have a front, back, and sides.  It cannot be a piece of paper with things glued on it.  You can choose to make a hanging model or one that will be placed on the lab tables for viewing.  Your plant cell must be rectangular and/or your animal cell must be circular.
  • It can be edible or non-edible.
  • All parts of your cell must be labeled clearly in order to receive credit.   You may use toothpicks and pieces of paper to make little flags, for instance.  If you want to use tagboard to make a separate key for your cell, you may.  See me for tagboard (poster board).
  • Your representations of the organelles must be similar to the ones seen in class, for example, your nucleus cannot be square.  Review chapter four in your textbook, and also diagrams for plant and animals cells that we have gone over in class.  Of course, you can also Google, plant and animal cell images to see variations of the cell types!
  • Be unique and creative, use food, yarn, candy, clay, Styrofoam, uncooked pasta, and anything else appropriate that you can think of, in any combination.

You will use the attached rubric to see which organelles need to be present, accurate, and labeled.  You will turn your copy of the rubric when you turn in your 3-D model.

3-D Plant Cell Model Project Rubric
Grading:
You will initially start with a 100 for your project grade.  You will lose points for the following items:
Missing an organelle (deduct 4 points for each organelle)
Missing a label on an organelle (deduct 4 points for each label)
Organelle is mislabeled (deduct 4 points for each mistake)
No name on project (deduct 4 points)
Plant cell is not square (deduct 20 points)
Project is sloppy (deduct up to 20 points)
Project is late (deducted: 10 points per day: after 5 days project grade is a 0)
Project is not three-dimensional (deduct 30 points)

Remember:  Your project grade is worth 100 points total.  It is intended to help you better understand the cell and improve your grade.  Please take this seriously and turn it in on time.
