Extra Credit...........................................
You can write paragraphs on any life science topic for extra credit.

For me to accept written work as extra credit, I will need the following:
1. A list of facts on a topic. (Better yet the facts would be in an outline.)
2. Compose your own topic sentences that link together your list of facts in a logical way.
3. Written paragraphs composed by you that contain these topic sentences and facts.

One way to write paragraphs on a topic is to:
1. Create a list of question about the topic.
2. Collect facts that answer these questions.
3. Create topic sentences that group and link the facts you collected in a way that makes sense.
4. Write a paragraph that includes the topic sentences and their related facts.

1. For example, a list of questions might look like this:
What is the organ's importance?
Where is the organ located in the body?
What is the organ's structure or parts?
What organ system is it part of?
What is the organ's function in its organ system?
What is the organ's relationship or connections to other organs?
What are some diseases related to the organ?
What are some health practices can keep the organ healthy?

2. Make a list of facts that answers each of the above questions?

3. Compose topic sentences that group and relate facts that go together.

4. Compose paragraphs using your topic sentences and their related facts.

You could use the above as a guide to write about any body part.
I would give you some points for the list of questions.
I would give you more points for facts that answer answer your questions.
Composing topic sentences involves more thinking, so they would earn a greater number of points.
Composing paragraphs also involves more thinking, so they would earn a greater number of points.
