How To Make Plant Cell 3D model for school science exhibition


In this topic, we are going to show you how to build a Plant Cell 3D model for your science project or exhibitions.

What is Plant Cell?

Plant cells are present in green plants and their primary cell walls contain cellulose, pectin, and hemicelluloses.

Plastids have the capability to photosynthesis and store starch

What is Plant Cell is made up of?

Vacuole helps to regulate turgor pressure.

Fungi cell walls are made up of chitin of bacteria which are composed of peptidoglycan and of archaea.

Protoplast is a secondary wall layer inside the primary cell wall and helps in secretion of lignin or suberin.

Outside the primary cell wall cutin is secreted and into outer layers of the secondary cell wall of epidermal cells of stems, leaves and above-ground organs of plant cuticle.

Cell walls provide shape to form tissue and organs of the plant. It helps in intercellular communication and plant-microbe interaction.

Plant cells contain large central vacuole which is water filled volume that is enclosed by a membrane known as the tonoplast which has cells turgor and controls movement of molecules between cytosol and sap.

It also stores materials like phosphorus and nitrogen and helps in digestion of proteins and organelles.

Plasmodesmata are a cell-to-cell communication pathway which occurs as pores in primary cell wall through which plasmalemma and endoplasmic reticulum are laid out continuous.

Plastids are present in plant cells and most common is chloroplasts that have a green colored pigment called as chlorophyll

How Does Plant cell help to generate energy?

Plastids help in converting sunlight energy into chemical energy that is consumed by the plant to make its own food from water and carbon dioxide during the process of photosynthesis.

Cell division takes place by the construction of a phragmoplast as a template to build a cell plate in cytokinesis.

Science Exhibition Questions & Answers for Plant Cell Model

  1. What is a plant cell?
    They are the type of eukaryotic cell which is found in organisms with the plant kingdom.
  2. What are the types of plant cells?
    Sclerenchyma cells, xylem cells, parenchyma cells, collenchyma cells and finally phloem cells.
  3. What substance can have three states of matter easily?
    Water is the best example to possess three states of matter easily.
  4. What is the function of plant cells?
    Plant cells carry out all the functions of a plant that is required for their survival. Photosynthesis is a process during which food is prepared using light energy, water, and carbon dioxide and occurs inside chloroplasts of the cell.
  5. What are the differences between plant and animal cells?
    Plant cells have cell membranes, cell wall whereas animal cells have a surrounding membrane.


Plant cell model helps us to understand the various parts of cells and their functions.
