IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- Irvington Middle School seventh-graders have been learning about the different structures and functions that make up plant and animal cells.

In order to deepen their understanding of the material, they collaborated on a variety of projects to creatively demonstrate what makes up a cell.

“Some students made 3-D models and cell cakes, some created children’s stories, and we even had some musical students shine by creating songs,” said Nicole Arvanites, a seventh-grade science teacher.

Several projects featured Rice Krispies treats, frosting, chocolate and candy, as well as pompoms and straws.

“Our seventh-graders did an amazing job of excelling in cells,” Arvanites said.
