OK, I'll try. Since it's homework, I'll put in point-form.
A being = body + consciousness.
Death = physical body not functioning any more.
Consciousness is not terminated. It simply seeks a new medium to express itself = rebirth.
Death is not the end; birth takes place after death.
Birth is not the beginning, death came before it.
Buddhist realism = birth, growth, sickness, old age, and death. Pain and sorrow, no escape in this life. This is the Universal Truth, a natural phenomenon. No matter who you are or what you believe!
From here, if you need more info, please come back.
