Ready-to-Go Research Projects for Third Graders! With this resource, you'll find 40 engaging, creative and fun enrichment research projects about interesting science and social studies topics aligned to most 3rd grade curricula. The projects allow students to think outside of the box when they research topics for specific answers. From creating awards for famous cowboys or explorers, to researching ways a hero has shown good citizenship or even researching ways that a penguin is not like a bird, your students will love these projects!
The projects are perfect for gifted classrooms and advanced learners; go-to-projects for early finishers or for all students who are eager for opportunities to research new and interesting information.
The projects can be printed off and students may write on the forms provided or you can laminate each project and have students record their answers on separate sheets of paper.
I've also included a blank template in case you'd like to create more projects yourself.
