Common Core based research templates allow students to write an essay about George Washington with each paragraph broken down into color coded sections.
Students will use green sections for the topic sentence, orange for key details and red for the conclusion of each paragraph. This also allows students to use the same color highlighters when researching printed passages making understanding text, for 3-4th graders, easier.
There is also a publishing paper template for their finished work, as well as brainstorming bubbles with correlating colors. There is a list of specific common core standards listed in a chart that will be addressed within this lesson. This packet also includes a timeline template and main idea section.
