PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I used this as a research project with my sixth graders after studying the causes of volcanoes and earthquakes. Because I only teach math and science, I chose to integrate the five-paragraph expository essay and research skills into this activity as part of a team teaching effort. Students are asked to pick an historical event involving an Earthquake or Volcano Eruption. Their four choices are Pompeii, Mt. St. Helens, the San Francisco Earthquake or Haiti Earthquake. My time frame was eight one-hour class periods from start to finish, but we could have easily used a couple more days for editing their essays.

I have included pdf and doc formats for your editing needs.

Included in this product you will find:
-Student directions
-Student research outline for note-taking
-Student page for citing sources
-Quick project rubric
-Rubric for five-paragraph essay
-An actual student product for your use
