PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

{UPDATE - NEW MATERIALS ADDED} This is a great cross-curricular unit that incorporates research, biographies, expository writing, American history, student choice, and FUN, CREATIVE art! Students will research an American hero using the research plan provided in the packet, then create a pumpkin depicting their hero (at home!).

Included in the guide:
*Detailed teacher instructions and helpful hints
*Cover page for student-made folders to keep work organized (I use the folder for students to take back-and-forth from school and home so that nothing would get lost.)
*Research checklist with detailed instructions/outline for each paragraph of the research paper
*Research charts to to record information
*Interactive file folder and cards to record text-to-self & text-to-world connections
*TWO different sets of rough draft templates to scaffold students (one is more structured than the other)
*Citing Sources bibliography page
*Parent letter detailing project
*Parent letter with grading rubric and a form for parents to sign acknowledging project
*Teacher grading rubric
*32 cards with famous Americans (male & female) to make assigning a hero easy
***UPDATE - In addition to the materials for the research paper (listed above), I've added a second option that incorporates more student choice. Now included in the guide is a project menu, with six different project options (research paper, game, poem, song, Power Point presentation, picture book). Materials have been tweaked and added to the bundle so that the rubric, parent letter, etc. for the project menu reflect the differences from the research paper option.

Check out the preview to see a sample of the materials you will find in the guide. Click on the green tab below the thumbnails at the top of the page.
