Do you like Science? Do you like Art? Do you like to eat? Then this class is for you! Children will create an edible plant cell from fruit, and an animal cell from candy. As children learn about the parts of plants and their functions they’ll create a representation of a plant and all its parts from recyclable items, and an animal from air dry clay. Next, we’ll learn about the lifecycle of frogs as we create a representation of each stage with polymer clay. Ages 5-11
