This was a short week but we had a lot of fun! Today we made cell cakes. Parent volunteers sent in cakes for the students to use to create a cell. Each group had time to meet and decide what type of candy to bring to represent each organelle we learned about.
As you can see, they had a lot of fun making their cells!
Check out our completed cell cakes!
We also drew a turkey using Activity TV's T is for Turkey.
After they drew the picture I had the students write about their favorite Thanksgiving food. Mine was my mother in law's dressing!
We also did a little something different with writing today. Normally teachers have students write what they are thankful for. I gave the students a topic and they had to tell me why they are thankful for that item.
Some of the topics included shoes, band-aids, clocks, chairs, and fire drills.
Thanks to Mrs. Reasner for sharing this activity! It was a different way to write about things we are thankful for.
STUDENTS: Look at the pictures above and see what number your cake is. Tell us what number your cake is. Write about one of the organelles and the candy you used to represent it. What does that organelle do in a real cell?
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
