A fun and creative written report after conducting research on a famous Ohioan.
I have included research questions on pockets, "That's Good" and "That's Bad" posters for student presentations, student requirements, a sample report, a writing checklist, a writing rubric, and appealing writing paper for the following famous Ohioans:
Orville & Wilbur Wright
James Murray Spangler
Ulysses S. Grant
Harriet Beecher Stowe
William Henry Harrison
James A. Garfield
Rutherford B. Hayes
Along with the writing requirements, I have also included directions on how I have students organize their research. I have also included "That's Good" and "That's Bad" posters for the students to hold up during their presentations. All students are engaged and have a lot of fun presenting their work. It's a fun way for students to present their research because it is not a typical "5 paragraph" report. It allows them to write creatively and have fun while doing it!
This goes great with the Social Studies standards!
