This is a booklet I created for my 1st grade class to begin doing Research. On the cover, I left room for the students to draw a picture of the animal. I included some Reading Comprehension skills we have been working on: Schema, Questioning, and Text Features (diagrams and labeling). This is a simple way to have your students begin doing Reasearch (which is included heavily in the Common Core Standards). This is the same booklet as my "Bat Research" one, but it is for Spiders.
