Dear 7th Grade Families,

In light of the COVID-19 we will be closing school for 2 weeks. In order to insure our scholars are still maintaining their academic rigor, I have assigned a project on cancer that the students are to complete. They will need internet access conduct research and should use their science notes/notebooks for assistance as well. For the model portion of the project, students are to use the engineering and design process to guide their designs. The model may be drawn, constructed, or designed using computer animation. The written portion must be written in the student’s own words and must have a work cited page as well. There is a rubric explaining how the project will be graded in detail as well as an overall explanation of the project below the rubric. Students are expected to work on this project for at least 1-hour per day and the project will count as 2-test grades and 1-project grade. The project is due on the first day we return to school and the papers may be mailed to me. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me cmitchell@rapcs.org

 

Kind Regards,

 

Mitchell

2. No model

N/A

 

Students will research different types of cancer (example: lymphoma, melanoma). Students will choose one type of cancer and create a model illustrating how the cancer they chose affects the cells, tissues, organs and organ systems within people. The project will have 2 parts to it:

  1. A 5 paragraph paper explaining how the cancer develops, how it spreads, how to prevent it, how it affects cells, tissues organs and organ systems, its causes and treatments. The paper must be typed in size 12-Times New Roman font, single spaced with each paragraph indented. Must include a work cited page.
