Ribosomes, cell membranes, mitochondrion, and the nucleus are all critical parts of a cell and 9th grade is learning all about it this week!  With old fashioned shrinky dinks and even some candy cell assembly, Mrs. Degraaf is teaching her science students God’s perfect design in the makeup of a cell. In their quest to compose a paper outlining the “journey through the cell”, these students are learning about plant and animal cells, their structure, and their function.  Using Reeses butter cups for a nucleus, chocolate sprinkles as ribosomes, jelly beans as mitochondrion, and twizzlers as the endoplasmic reticulum, the 9th graders found that science is fascinating AND delicious!
