Cookies! Everyone loves cookies! The biology 1 class decorated cookie dough to look like cells. Each student was given a ball of cookie dough. They used sprinkles of different colors and shapes, tiny candies, chocolate pieces, etc. to represent the organelles in cells. Then cookies were refrigerated until Mrs. Raymer baked them.
The cookies were a hands-on activity to reinforce the placement and identity of the organelles. The function of the organelles was reviewed the next day, while everyone enjoyed eating his/her cell cookie. Students said they would like to have edible activities every day and that they enjoyed the treat.
