Has a light bulb ever appeared hovering over your head with the idea that you should bake cookies modeled after the cellular structure of a plant? Leave it to the innovative minds of our students to floor you with not only their creativity but their enthusiasm to take their learning to the next level.
After receiving a “Plant Cell” lesson with Ms. Rachel and mastering a detailed understanding of the terminology and role of each part of the cell, three Elementary students created a proposal to bake cookies with ingredients to represent each part of the cell.
The girls arranged specific ingredients onto their baked cookies, resulting in a masterful display of “edible plant cell” cookies. When asked to describe their project, they excitedly took turns explaining. Click on the video below to see the girls talk about their exciting project:
To bring their research to completion, they of course, had to sample their creations. Not only did they bake enough to share with their classmates (who are we kidding, these are Montessori children), they even thought to prepare enough to share with others throughout the school. We never knew plant cells could be so delicious!
