Today we began a unit on the human body for science. Our first topic was cells. We talked about what their purpose is and looked at pictures of them in a book called Cells by Michael George.
After reading about it, I had the girls make a model of a cell from a diagram I got from Crayola.com.
They drew a circle and then glued a button in the middle to represent the nucleus. Then they used gems and colored macaroni to represent the other cell parts.
Learning is more fun when you can use glue!
