This 12 page packet is a time saver packet for 4th grade teachers in California. I made this when I taught about the California Mission Unit. It includes a parent letter with a detailed explanation about the report and project (3D model or poster), as well as oral report. It also includes rubrics and a research outline for students, as well as a list of suggested websites for research. The last pg. of the packet is a parent signature page for parents to sign off on the project. It's in a Word document so you can edit it to fit your needs.
