This is a graphic organizer which can be used as a research project in and of itself for your grades, or it can be used as an initial assessment for older grades. For my students, I use this as an initial assessment. They are assigned a topic at random and must research it and then fill in the organizer. I have them fill in the source boxes using the bibliography format I teach them. In younger grades, they may just give the name of their source and the author.
