The main starting topic of the all biology courses, is the cell structure and its generic functions. In order to achieve a deeper understanding of these concepts, with particular emphasis on organelles and differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, and between animal and plant cells, an helpful, and very effective tool of teaching is the “modelling” of the cells.
Throughout this hands-on activity, working in groups, the students have designed several models of cell: this gave them the opportunity to improve their knowledge, clarify doubts and have fun as well!
