Students who demonstrate understanding can:

MS-LS1-2.	Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways the parts of cells contribute to the function. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the cell functioning as a whole system and the primary role of identified parts of the cell, specifically the nucleus, mitochondria, cell membrane.
I am an experienced biology teacher who has performed these experiments with over 100 students in the classroom.
Week 1 - ruler with centimeters, 1 paperclip, handout, and pencil Week 2 - water, dish soap, corn syrup or glycerol, 4 bendable straws, string, spool of thread, 1 clean straw, and a shallow tray Week 3 - Jell-O, bowl, different size and shape candies and/or fruit Week 4 - paper and coloring utensils (students may also choose do their cell analogy on the computer)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students may need assistance making the Jell-O for week 3.
