My second graders are about to write their first research paper. This is going to take a lot of guidance and modeling. I am introducing them to a whole new genre of writing. I want them to be comfortable and feel successful! I created this template to use with them. We are researching about animals. It is going to be a lot of work and a lot of fun!
Not only will they write this paper, but they will be using their own Google accounts to create a Slide Show presentation of their papers too! This is a great way to build their literacy, science, and technology skills not to mention build their confidence as I am about to send them off to third grade.
I hope you and your class will find this useful!
