Animal/Plant Cell Model
Name: ________________________________ Due Date: ____________________
For this project, you will work in a group of up to 3 people to build a textured, 3dimensional model of a specific plant or animal cell. You should focus on what the
structures in the cells are and how they function/what they do for the cell. You will
also be required to research a disease or disorder that affects that particular cell.
 To include texture in your model, you may want to use the following items:
beads, hard candy pieces, rice, beans, string, puffy paint, cotton, styrofoam etc.
Doing this will make it 3-dimensional.
 You will be assigned a particular cell (leaf, root, flower, muscle or nerve). You
will be required to identify how that cell is different from other cells in
structure and function. You will then research a disease and be required to
identify signs, symptoms and treatments of that disease or disorder. In
addition you will be required to discuss how the disease affects the cell. Be
sure to use good resources and cite them.
You should use your notes, textbook, and internet to find appropriate items to
represent your structures and organelles. Cell parts must be labeled on the model
and defined (with the function) in your project (worksheet, puzzle, game etc.). Cell
parts must also be sized correctly in relation to other parts, relative numbers as they
are in real numbers, and colored as it would be in a real cell (plant parts have certain
colors, while most animal cells do not).
You will have about 2 full weeks to complete this assignment for full credit. You
can work in groups of up to 3 on this project. You don’t have to work in a group if
you don’t want to. You can pick the groups. You must be able to get together outside
of school to do the project, as we will not have time to do more than plan it in class. If
your group is having personality conflicts (e.g. someone is not doing their part), you
should let me know so we can work that out as soon as possible. If you wait until the
end grade to tell me someone didn’t do anything, I can’t help you.
My expectation is that your product reflects the number of people in your
group. If you fly solo, I’ll be more lenient than if there are 3 of you. Also, all work
should be your own. I should not find pictures/quotes from other sources as part of
your project. Your work should represent high school level work.
You will be expected to present your project to the class and will be graded as a
group for the project. The presentation is to show off what you have done, as well as
what you know.
Use the rubric on the back of this paper as a checklist. Remember to make
sure your cell parts are labeled and defined (with the function) in your project
somewhere. The whole thing is worth 100 points in the 15% Lab/Project category.

Animal/Plant Cell Model Research
Some of you guys have been coming to me with the same question, so I figured it might save
some stress on your part just to put this in writing.
Cell shapes: some cells have different shapes than that generic diagram you see in books and
stuff. Not all animal cells are round; not all plant cells are square. If yours is a different shape, your
model and presentation should show and highlight that. If your research does not reveal a different
shape for the cell, perhaps it is different from the generic cell by its function.
Cell functions: some cells, because of their functions, have more (or less) of a particular
organelle. For example, an animal cell that gives off a lot of chemicals will have a lot of ER, Golgi and
vacuoles. A plant cell that does not do photosynthesis would have very few chloroplasts compared to
one that does photosynthesis. Your model and presentation should point out these differences.
Research: If you’re not finding anything using key terms like “plant root disease” or “animal
stomach cell” try being more general. Try “plant disease” and if the affects your part of the plant you’ve
found one. Or try “human” instead of “animal.” I’ll bet your book (and the blue one) have a lot of
detailed info later in the book about plants and animals… 
Leeway: When grading this, I realize you’re in an intro level Biology class, so I’m not looking for
super deep details. I’m looking that you have made some effort to understand that cells are important
because disease happens at the level of the cell, and cells are not all the same. Even within something
like a leaf or human skin, there are different layers that have cells with different shapes, but we’re not
going into that much detail.
