Seventh Grade Students Learn About Cells In A Delicious Way!

The students in Eric Rigsby’s seventh grade science class have been studying about cells and body systems for the past few weeks.   They ended their unit of study with a fun experiment that helped the students understand the parts of a cell in a very delicious way.


Students participated in a cell cake lab where they decorated cakes with various candy pieces to represent the different parts of a cell.




The cakes turned out very colorful and were a yummy way to learn about the nucleus, ribosomes, vacuoles, mitochondria, cell membranes and endoplasmic reticulum.
