Crafting Cell Diagrams

Watch more with these video collections:

Create your own cells with science enthusiast and STEM education advocate Ella K. Chan. In 2013, at the age of 12, she began sharing science activities for kids on her Sci Files YouTube channel. In this activity, she demonstrates ways to make plant and animal cell diagrams with color construction paper and/or watercolors and a white crayon.

Here’s a Sci Files diagram to start with. There are also coloring pages via HomeSchoolClipArt: a human cell (pdf) and a plant cell (pdf), and more examples of animal cells and plant cells here via wikipedia:
