Update: a rubric to evaluate your students on their project
This packet is a fun way for kids to research and show what they have learned about a person they have researched. It is a creative way to meet the writing standards for research for all of the elementary grades. Of course, speaking and listening will also be covered if you have the kids present their lapbooks.
