					                                              Creating a Children’s Book
Children’s Books often explain concepts in simple and magical manners. Many complex topics have been explained
through comparison to simpler situations presented in children’s books. Your task is to create a colorful and
understandable children’s book that tells the story of mitosis.
Your Task:
Create an illustrated story about mitosis that could be used to teach a child in kindergarten about the process of mitosis
and the details involved. Your book should be a story about mitosis, not a description about the steps of mitosis. You
will need to think about what is happening during mitosis and explain these concepts by relating them to something a
kindergartener would understand.
Your Grade:
You will be graded on your ability to explain mitosis in a manner a young child would understand. If you are able to
explain mitosis, and teach some one about mitosis, then you are demonstrating your knowledge of the topic. The
following rubric will be used to grade your Children’s Book.

You will be given     etc.)                                                                          time in class to
complete this assignment, but depending on the details of your creation, you may need to complete the project outside of
class.
