Jello Cell Model

Science has become the most anticipated subject in our homeschool this year. And as a homeschool mom there isn’t much better than seeing your kids excited about learning! Since not all homeschoolers are very comfortable with or excited about Science (I have to admit that was me), I wanted to share some of the home school Science fun we’ve been having to inspire and encourage you! We’ve been making edible Jello Cell Model to learn about the cells in our body. This edible cell project is such a fun hands-on science activity for kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, grade 6, jr high and senior high too! Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – you will love this fun cell project where students will make a candy cell model as a human body project for kids.

Edible Cell Project

One of our favorite hands on Science activity so far has been making a jello animal cell. First we learned what cells do and their structure. Then we built a candy cell model with candy we had laying around. (Note: This is a great kids activity to use of the extra Halloween candy!)

Cell Project

You can use any flavor Jell-O or candy for your animal cells project, but here is what we used and is pictured above.

  • Cytoplasm – Green Jell-O
  • Endoplasmic Reticulum – Licorice
  • Vacuole – Whopper
  • Lysosome – M&Ms
  • Goigi Apparatus – Banana taffy
  • Ribosomes – Sprinkles
  • Mitochondrion – mini Tootsie Roll
  • Nucleus – Pear & Jaw Breaker (a peach would work great, but we ate ours for snack instead)

Jello Animal Cell Project - this is such a fun, hands on science project for kids learning about animal cells. Great resources and explanation on how to use various items including candy to make and edible animal cell #animalcells #scienceforkids #homeschooling
