FREDON — At the Fredon School, Mrs. Monica Cacciaguida's third grade science students have been studying the cellular structure and functions of plant and animal cells. As a culminating activity, the students made a three-dimensional model of an animal cell using Jello. The Jello itself represented the cytoplasm and a Raisnet was used to represent the nucleus. A jellybean, cut in half, represented the vacuoles and a Pull-n-Peel Twizzler was used to represent the cell membrane. The students ate their molds the next day after they had set. Everyone learned a lot and had a fun and tasty treat.
