The first unit for our S1 Biology pupils focuses on Multicellular Organisms and Reproduction. Their first homework exercise for this unit comprises of two parts - a written exercise and a practical task where the pupils are asked to make a model of either an animal or a plant cell.
The pupils can use any materials they like to make their model but it has to be complete with labels so that they can consolidate their knowledge of cell structure. This is a fantastic activity for our kinaesthetic learners and our pupils really used their imagination to make some excellent models.
Mrs Weir said, “I was really impressed with the models made by the class. They used a variety of different materials, including Lego bricks, and all of the models were clearly labelled to show the structure of the cells. Well done all.”
