Directions for students to create a children's book about cell organelles in a cooperative learning group of four. Could be easily tailored for an individual project (I have done it both ways). I typically do this project in class for a week. The project asks students to create a book page for 15 organelles, each with a picture, the function, and a real-world comparison (for example, the nucleus is like the point guard on a basketball team, because it directs the actions of the cell).
Includes student directions, four specific jobs for a cooperative learning group, and a rubric based on 100 points.
