Take a paper plate and write your name on the edge of the paper plate.
Take five toothpicks and five pieces of tape. Make them into flags. Label each flag - nucleus, mitochondria, vacuole, cell membrane, and cytoplasm.
Take Model Magic. The modeling clay is the cytoplasm of your cell. Cytoplasm is a jellylike material that fills the space of a cell.
Using your thumb, make a small indentation in the center of the cytoplasm. Place the malted milk ball in the indentation. This is your cell’s nucleus. The nucleus determines the cells activities.
Scatter a few raisins and candies within the cytoplasm. The raisins represent the structures that release energy for the cell (mitochondria). The candies represent the storage areas for the cell (vacuoles).
Place plastic wrap over the cell to protect the cell. This is the cell membrane. The cell membrane controls what materials go into and out of the cell.
Stick the flags you made out of toothpicks next to the nucleus, mitochondria, cell membrane, vacuole, and one in the cytoplasm.

Take a picture of your cell. MAKE SURE YOU CAN SEE YOUR NAME THAT YOU WROTE ON THE PAPER PLATE, SO THAT YOU CAN IDENTIFY YOUR CELL.
Conclusion -
1) Observe your model. What cell part makes up the greatest part of your model?cytoplasm What can you conclude from this observation? it is the biggest part of the cell
2) What cell part is at the center of your cell?nucleus Where in the cell are all the other cell parts located? in the cloroplast
3) Scientists often use models to better understand complex structures. How does your cell model help you draw conclusions about the structure of cells? it shows all the parts. What things about a cell does your model not tell you? what the things do
