Spanish Fork Jr. High was a multicolored mix of animal and plant cells when students from Mr. Hallam's Biology class drew “Cell Art” around the school.

Students got to choose what type of cells they would draw: animal or plant. There were many types of cells on the sidewalks, and lots people noticed them because of their large size and bright colors.  The cells had all the necessary organelles from the mitochondria to the chloroplasts.

Mr. Hallam does this fun assignment to show the students in his biology classes what cells look like.  It helps prepare them for upcoming test by teaching them the parts of plant and animal cells and their locations.  By drawing them in this large format, students will be better able to draw and label them on their tests.

Thanks Mr. Hallam for making learning fun!
