Design a unique, never-before-seen cell that does a specific job, focusing on the theme that structure helps support function.

Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells (MS-LS1-1).
Develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function (MS-LS1-2).
