					                                              Children’s Book Project

Objectives:
        You work for a children’s book publishing house. Your editor in chief has called you into her office for an
important meeting. She wants to publish children’s geology books, more precisely; she wants to start with books about
glaciers. She asks you to write one of these books following an instruction grid (RUBRIC) given below.

Instructions:
    1. The book must be made on 8½ " x 14" legal paper folded in two.
    2. The book should not have any more than twelve pages (so 6 sheets of 8½ "x 14 "). This includes the cover
         page.
    3. The drawings can be done by hand, printed from the internet or photocopied from a book. (Don’t forget to
         cite these in a bibliography!)
    4. The bibliography must be passed in separate from the book on another sheet of paper. If you don’t pass one
         it, you get zero on the project.
    5. You will be working individually OR in groups of TWO on this project.
                       Subjects in your Book                                Done?     Outcome
