Help students learn and remember the parts of an animal cell using this diagram crossword. BONUS ACTIVITY: When they've completed the crossword, get them to cut out the diagram, glue it on a separate page and label the parts of the diagram.

Awesome edible "phospholipid bilayer" activity to help my students remember the structure and key parts of a typical cell membrane. Each student receives a snack bag with 8 marshmallows, 2 two inch sections of pull & peel licorice, and 1 four inch piece of a red vine licorice (I used grape flavored red vines this year as the "Purple" transport "Protein".) After completing a worksheet about the functions & key parts of a cell membrane, we each assemble one & pair share about each part
