Alpha-boxes! Graphic Organizer! Research Made Fun!
This product can be used in a couple of ways. If you have a poster maker, you can enlarge this to use with your whole class. This is great for any unit of study that you and your kids take on. The idea is as you and your class are researching a topic, kids add to the chart anything that that has to do with that topic that starts with each letter. You may not be able to find something for each letter but be creative! Once this is done, you have a couple options. You and your class can make an Alphabet book on the topic using what you have learn and added to the chart. You can also use the information gathered from the chart and write each fact learned on a sentence strip and then organize the information by subtopic and then create a class information book.
There is also black and white copies so that kids can use this as a graphic organizer for their own research. It is just another way to cleverly organize information. This will definitely stretch your kids’ thinking as they will be challenged to fill in all the boxes. Of course, you can have multiple facts in a box, which just add to the depth of knowledge.
