Watch Cells Shrink And Student Interest Grow
Cells shrink before your eyes to 1/3 their size. Use this fun activity to colorfully illustrate the components of plant and animal cells. Using colored pencils or markers, students color in a cell, created from a template, on the SHRINKLES® plastic sheets. While they decorate their cell, they can identify and describe the different organelles. Once complete, the SHRINKLES® bake in an oven and dramatically reduce in size. The finished product is a fun, lasting reminder of cell structure that can be used as a keychain or backpack zipper tag.
