This activity is designed to fit with the Common Core LA for K.
Kindergarten students need to learn how to do a research report but usually cannot do it on their own so this activity is designed to be completed with help.
There are 3 options for Kindergarten research reports here. A wheel report, a regular report and a step book animal report. You can either have all you students do one type of report or let them choose which one they want to do.
To have your students complete the report have them work with parent helpers or with older buddies to read books. I ordered sets of books from Capstone Press that are very simple to read but most Kindergarten kids still need a lot of help with this.
If you use these for 1st or 2nd grade they could probably do it without a lot of help.
