21st Century Skills: Creativity – Science
Students used what they already knew about the animal cell and created a system that incorporates the functions of the organelles. The students were given organelles with the functions that needed to be included in their project. They had a sheet that described what a “system” is. This could be a school system, a sports team, a video game or any other system that they come up with. They compared the parts of the system with the functions of the cell. The students could use any technology they can get their hands on to create this project. They had training with different programs on the computer. They could create a video game, make a model, or even create a movie. They could also build their project from items that I provided such as Legos, or other materials.
