Option 1- The Research Paper
What effect does your type of cell (or virus) have on the functioning of the human body? After researching 5+ reliable informational texts on your chosen type of cell, write a short report (5 or more paragraphs) that investigates its structure, function, and malfunction (break-down, illness, injury, or disease). Be sure to provide evidence from your research to support your work and describe the challenges the cell/tissue faces (or causes) in surviving and thriving.
Option 2- The Researched Narrative
Can you personify your cell and write a story about the challenges it faces or causes in functioning? After researching 5+ reliable informational texts on your chosen type of cell, write a narrative that creatively depicts its structure, function, and malfunction (break-down, illness, injury, or disease). Use figurative language (e.g. hyperbole, alliteration, onomatopoeia, personification, simile, metaphor, idiom, and analogy) and elements of plot (characters, setting, conflict, rising action events, climax, falling action events, resolution, and title) to develop a story that helps the reader understand the challenges the cell/tissue faces (or causes) in surviving and thriving.
