Day 19 / 102 - Edible Animal Cell

You need to eat something in order to learn about it, right?

This week we've been studying the parts of an animal cell.  Today, in order to enhance our learning experience, we made giant chocolate chip cookies with candy toppings.  Each candy topping identified a different part of the cell that we've been learning about.

Of course I made my children tell me what that certain part of the cell did before I let them eat that topping!


  1. Evie and I have done this as well! Fun stuff! We have also done it out of playdough, let it harden, and then you have a model for quite some time!

    1. Great idea. Maybe we'll use playdough for plant cells!
