Product Description
This set of 22 Explorer Research Tri-folds is ideal for independent or group student research. Designed as a 2-sided brochure, the end product will be focused, organized, attractive and each will be unique! Each brochure includes the same open-ended response areas, illustration boxes, a map to label each explorer's route and space for students to cite sources – plus, there are areas promoting creativity and higher-level thinking. The similar format for each brochure will allow teachers to guide and support research regardless of student groupings.

* 22 Explorer-specific brochures – see list below!
* Kid-friendly Google Search Term card will help students do internet research more independently.
* Explorer Research List – an area for students to sign up and for you to keep track of who is reaching who!
* Explorer Evaluation Rubric – allows students to see expectations and facilitates easy scoring.

Students choose an explorer. You print the explorer-specific brochure – and the research begins!
