Ever wanted to simplify the research process so that students were able to access resources at their reading level and not waste time searching through texts in the library or online? I've done the leg work for you! This file contains 3 articles with completed MLA citations for 3 endangered species: Sea Turtle, Manatee and Orca Whale. Better yet, they are differentiated by reading level: Sea Turtle = easy and Manatee/Orca Whale = medium/challenging. Students can choose the level they prefer. Wait, there's more! This project uses the "Excellence in Writing" 3 word research strategy and contains graphic organizers to allow students to "fuse" their 3 sources into one paragraph outline. A project guideline, assessment checklist, MLA citation guide and example images of a completed project are also provided. I've used this project for a number of years and have been pleased with the results.
