GuidelineDirectionsStudent Check-offCompleted as directed (5 points)Completed with details lacking (3 points)Incomplete or did not follow directions (0 points)Total Score (completed by instructor)
1. Identification A Each student’s name and group should be on drawing, neatly and clearly written      
2. Identification B Name of organism, type of cell (plant, yeast, animal, bacteria), and mode of reproduction written clearly      
3. Planning An overall plan for drawing and labeling should be evident for three cells, each touching the other      
4. Eight Organelles Each organelle labeled correctly and explanation of what it does      
5. Size Drawing takes up entire paper      
6. Cell protein signal receptors 4 per cell, must match “partner” cell drawing      
7. Plasmodesmata and/or other pathways in membrane 4 openings in membrane for passage of needed cellular molecules using cut out shapes      
8. Placement and numbering of cellular chemicals Correctly numbered molecules must be placed within membrane receptors, affixed to correct organelle, or on gap junctions      
9. Group participation Each person helps group tasks  Full group 2 or 3 only 1 or 2 only  
10. Demonstrated understanding Understanding of the cell, its communication, and its chemical processes  Complete understanding Some understanding Lack of understanding
