Making an animal cell model with pizza was one of our family favorite activities in homeschooling.
Whether you are doing high school biology or elementary health, making a pizza model of a cell is fun.
I browned all the sausage and froze it for future meals.
You can use pre-made pizza sauce, but I made my own. Add garlic powder, basil, pepper to a can of tomato sauce…easy!
Spread sauce on crust. Leave a border of crust to resemble the cell wall.
Slice toppings. The ham piece was the hardest.
Place tomato & mushroom in center to symbolize nucleus & nucleolus.
Bake pizza in your oven. Follow directions for the crust you use.
After baking, allow kids a chance to identify the organelles. Then Eat & Enjoy!
Variations, printables, interactive games, videos and more are included in our Free Activity Guide.
