Joel's Science Project

Joel was assigned to make a diagram of a cell. Nate and Joel worked together to pick out computer parts to make the cell. Here is the completed diagram and hoe Joel made it.

The finished project

The light bulb is the vacuole. Foil wrapped around the round computer part is the ribosomes around the nucleus. The computer part in the middle is the nucleus. The small black parts are the mitochondria. The blue container is the cell wall. 
I think Joel and Nate did a good job on this project and I hope he gets a good grade. 


This weekend the kids decorated Halloween houses and picked out their costumes to get into the halloween spirit.

Cori decorated a group of houses and Joel decorated a graveyard. They both had fun decorating, eating icing and making everything "spooky".
