Biology-Final Cumulative Project 2019
Due: during your specific class period on _______________________
This is your FINAL PROJECT! This is also CUMULATIVE
PROJECT (meaning, the work given is on a higher level, and I expect
the work to be complete, informative, accurate, organized, and
presentable).
 This project consists of 9 sections.
 It is important that you use your time wisely, and begin working
immediately. Waiting until May to complete this is a grave
mistake.
 This must be typed; 12 font (handwritten projects will not be
accepted).
 Double spaced
 You must include a cover page (name, due date, class)
 You must include a table of contents indicating where each
component is located
 MUST INCLUDE PICTURES AND GRAPHICS
 You must include a reference page (projects without a works
cited will not be accepted; this is indicative of plagiarizing).
Materials suggested for the written portion this project (not
mandatory):
 One (1), three-ringed binder with clear cover sleeves. (½” or
1” depending on need) OR, three-pronged folder.
 Sheet protectors
You may submit your projects ahead of time for
EARLY GRADING AND FEEDBACK! This will
allow you to take your projects back home, and
correct them.
Early Grading is from April 24-May 22, 2019
*Full points will only be rewarded to work that is accurate, complete, and shows proficiency and
conceptual understanding of concepts.
