|This year's newest member of the project; The Bacterial Cell|
"Remember, the primary goal of this project is to describe the similarities and differences between animal, plant and bacterial cells. "
|This year's Plant Cell|
- A descriptive list of the required elements of the Cell Cake Project
- The super-easy and yummy Marshmallow Fondant recipe that kids can use for labeling and other structures.
- Venn diagram organizer for plant, bacterial and animal cells
|The Animal Cell--this cake was saved from a crumbly death by a large batch of delicious homemade fondant icing.|

- RESEARCH FORM: http://www.iecc.edu/wvc/lrc/resrws.pdf
- http://www.johnkyrk.com/CellIndex.html--this site has several links in the drop-down menu that could be useful in identifying additional structures or more detailed explanations that would be helpful in making your poster/model. For example http://www.johnkyrk.com/golgiAlone.html has detailed descriptions of how the Golgi body works.
- http://www.cellsalive.com/cells/3dcell.htm has interactive models of all three cell types.

- **Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cell_(biology)--this site can be used as a STARTING PLACE to find information. Keep in mind, that Wikipedia has gathered it's information from other places...those places are listed (with links) at the bottom of the page. Those are the links that should be used in your research forms, NOT "en.wikipedia.org".
