Cellular Respiration - Graphic Organizer - Storyboarding

Biology Inclusion Class Set Includes 3 Student Texts, 1 Student Workbook, Teachers Edition, and Teachers Resource Library (Ags Biology)
I use storyboarding to teach the processes of protein synthesis, photosynthesis, and cellular respiration. I introduce my students to the concept of storyboarding by showing them this American Film Institute video, which can be found on these three web sites:

Here is the hand out for Cellular Respiration (see example key at the bottom of this post):

Storyboard - Cellular Respiration
Name _____________________________________________

INSTRUCTIONS FOR STORYBOARDING ACTIVITY – CELLULAR RESPIRATION

1. YOU MUST PUT AT LEAST EIGHT FACTS ONTO YOUR STORYBOARD THAT HELP
EXPLAIN CELLULAR RESPIRATION.
1 PT. EACH

2. YOU MUST USE THE FOLLOWING VOCABULARY WORDS AND MAKE THEM
BOLD:

PHOTOSYNTHESIS
CELLULAR RESPIRATION
ATP
GLUCOSE
MITOCHONDRION
CITRIC ACID CYCLE (KREBS CYCLE)
ELECTRON TRANSPORT CHAIN
½ PT. EACH WORD

3. DEFINE EACH OF THE ABOVE VOCABULARY WORDS ON THE BACK OF YOUR
STORYBOARD.
½ PT. EACH WORD

4. YOU MUST DRAW IN THE THREE END PRODUCT MOLECULES.
1 PT. EACH

5. YOU MUST USE THE SUMMARY BIOCHEMICAL EQUATION FOR RESPIRATION.
1 PT. EACH

6. YOU MUST NUMBER THE SIX STORYBOARD SQUARES SO THAT THE READER
WILL BE ABLE TO FOLLOW THEM IN THE CORRECT SEQUENCE.
1 PT. EACH

TOTAL 20 PTS.
Here is the example key for the respiration storyboard:
My previous two posts are the Storyboards for Photosynthesis:  The Light Reactions and the Calvin Cycle.  
My next post will be the storyboards for Protein Synthesis.
