School name: Cape Town High School
Project title: Construction of 3D teaching tools
Activity description: In this activity, students were asked to present construction of 3D teaching tools, from their own homes during the pandemic. Students presentations included the following topics.
- Eukaryotic cells
- Prokaryotic cells
- The excretory system
- Interior & exterior structure of cells
- The specialized subunits, organelles
- The female reproductive system
Fig.1 Shown here is a 3D model of a prokaryotic cell made by a piece of polystyrene. Students were asked to explain its interior structure.
Fig.2 Shown here is a 3D model of a eukaryotic cell made of a carved and colored piece of polystyrene. Students were asked to count and point out the organelles.
Fig.3 Shown here is a 3D model of the excretory system. Students were asked to explain the functions of the kidney and the urinary bladder.
Fig.4 Shown here is the 3D model of a female’s reproductive system. Students were asked to identify the external organs that function in the reproduction of new offspring.
Fig.5 Shown here is the 3D model of telophase (1 out of 4 cell division phases). Students were asked to explain the process of cell division.
