It is NEVER too early to teach students how to conduct research. This is one of the fundamental skills required of 21st century learners in higher education.
I have used these assignments in my classroom, and I have found that my middle school students enjoy them. You might also try to use them in higher level elementary classrooms (5th and 6th grades).
Please find each 25-question assignment and an answer key for easy grading in this packet. Thus, there are four documents total.
Here are a few sample questions:
"Because of its wealthy deposits of gold, this West African nation was once named the Gold Coast. What is its modern-day name?"
The answer is Ghana.
"The ancient Mayas grew cacao trees and used the cacao seeds they produced to make a frothy drink. What 'sweet treat' did the Mayas create?"
The answer is chocolate.
Please consider downloading this assignment for your classroom. Thank you!
