                                            Grading Guide
Student Objective
Create a children’s story book that shows the incredible journey of carbon through several
body systems and the ecosystem.
The Book will be digitally created in iphoto to increase technology skills.
Put this guide in a secure place! This project will take 3 trips to the computer lab to complete!

          To accomplish the project objective the student will:                         Point Value
               Use all Key terms in bold for full credit!

   as a carbohydrate monomer then bonding to a polymer using the key            10         5            0
   terms correctly.

      digestive system to the circulatory system: student will describe
      the process of absorption in the small intestine.
                                                                  Std 4.1

6. Continues the journey of the monomer in the correct sequence of
   the circulatory system to a cell in a muscle: Student will include
                                                                             10   5   0

                                                                  Std 1.2

                                                                             10   5   0

12. The Story ends with the solid waste (feces) becoming broken              10   5   0
