Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.


He made an animal cell pizza ...


and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...


He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

  5. Wow! Dawson did a great job. I have been anticipating his creative cells from when you mentioned him having to do one a couple of post ago. These are awesome and now I am hungry! ;)

    Thank You. I have children that learn so differently. Dawson and you have helped encourage me to grab those moments of teaching outside the box.

  7. HI! I love your son's creativity! I am planning to use the plant cell cookie in my Classical Conversations class on Friday. Can you tell me what he used to create the cookie? It looked like Hot Tamales, but that was all I could really see for sure! Thank you!

    1. The cookie is made with red sprinkles for the nucleus, a gummy lifesaver, hot tamales, and black icing. Hope your group has fun!

    1. I honestly don't know where we got the images. My son just pulled them up on his iPhone. I'd just google animal cell and plant cell images and see what comes up.

    1. That was a long time, lol! It looks like I used black olive slices, green and red pepper slices, a piece of thin sliced ham, a mushroom button, onion slices, and pepperonis. Have fun!
