Last year, my son wanted to make a 3-D plant cell for a science project, made of out felt. He made the pattern, cut the felt, and I helped him with the sewing.
It opened like a book, so the cell organelles were visible on two faces. Pretty neat, eh?
This year, the Mouse, who is just a grade behind him, received the same assignment – to create a model of a plant or animal cell.
Not to be outdone, Mouse decided to make BOTH a plant cell and an animal cell using felt.
The round one on the left is the animal cell – the plant cell is on the right. Mouse is being camera-shy, hiding behind them. I helped a little with the fine tuning, but Mouse did most of the work. Hope she gets an A!
