Show single celled sophistication with Paramecium!

Your students will enjoy learning about Paramecium with our colourful model.

Paramecium are complex single celled organisms that live in ponds that predate bacteria and smaller unicellular organisms. They are covered in cilia for movement and use a mouth-like oral groove to catch their prey, breaking it down and expelling the waste.

The model covers all the main parts of these cells: cilia, oral groove, contractile vacuole, cell membrane (pellicle), meganucleus, micronucleus, mitochondria, rough ER and Golgi.

Students make their Paramecium model using the colourful parts working alone or in small groups. It can be printed in colour, or in mono on coloured or white paper.
