This was made for 5th grade. It is teaching the important parts of Informational text then giving directions of a "research" project. They must include all the important facts about their "topic" and include different parts of informational text.
We will be using "weather" topics but this PowerPoint is set up easily so you can can change the topics to whatever you're class is studying at the time.
I just printed the slides out 4 to a page and gave them to the students as their "directions" for the project.
