The Great Giant Cell Model
Students from Mr. Haddad's seventh-grade Life Sciences classes constructed a life sized model of an animal cell and invited fourth-graders to tour the cell.
Seventh-grade students led fourth-grade students on tours of the cell model and thoughtfully adorned each organelle with a QR code so the younger students could learn more about each organelle's functionality. Fourth grade was very impressed with the life sized animal cell model!
Just two weeks prior, fourth grade created their own models of animal cells using food items such as dried fruits for organelles and whipped cream for cytoplasm, a culminating activity of their learning about cells earlier this year (photos below). It was a beautiful opportunity for community among grade levels and a great example of the progression of learning between Lower and Middle school at the Downtown Campus!
