To make a 3-D plant cell model, create cytoplasm with Jell-O, then divide it in upper and lower halves. Put sweets, representing various organelles of a plant cell, into holes in the lower half of the Jell-O. Put the top half of cytoplasm back on the model.Continue Reading
A 3-D model should reflect the fundamental structure of the plant cell. A plant cell is characterized by a rigid outer wall with cytoplasm inside, which contains specialized organelles. These include chloroplasts, one large vacuole and plasmodesmata. The plant cell also contains other organelles in common with an animal cell.
