PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Common Core Aligned with Informational Text and Writing Standards for Grades 2 - 6

Would you like to assign a report that requires students to THINK instead of copying and pasting facts from a website?

Complete directions are included, along with graphic organizers and a rubric. You may preview the entire packet before purchasing to see if these lessons are right for your class. You won't be able to print the preview file, but you will be able to read both lessons and view the printables.

On  March 1, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I am looking forward to trying out this project with my 5th graders. Since we are a values-based school, this format fits beautifully! I am wondering if there are any sample bio reports out there to use as student models? I'd love to find an example of the essay to give them an idea of what it will be like. Thank you!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 1, 2013Laura Candler answered:
Sorry, I didn't keep any that my students did. However, the kids did just fine without an example. Just work through the process as described and allow time for individual and peer conferences. You'll be amazed at how good they turn out!
