Science with Miss Sullivan!

Albion Middle School Intervention Specialist Miss Sullivan is teaching students the structures of a cell using a very large sugar cookie. Students had fun using frosting, licorice, and other candies to represent the cytoplasm, cell wall, nucleus and other parts of the cell. Great job engaging the students Miss Sullivan and even better job keeping most of the treats on the table and not the bellies!
