This farm research project is a fun, hands on, engaging way to bring research and writing about farms into your classroom. Through whole group research, the use of thinking maps and writing activities, students will learn all about farms, farmers, farm animals and how farms help us. Students will also conduct a science experiment to see what dissolves and graph their favorite animal! This resource makes research and writing simple and fun for all grades!
These pages are designed to make whole class charts and then students can complete their individual pages. For pre-K, kindergarten and 1st grade you can do research whole group through read aloud and videos. You then record the learning on the charts. Students can then copy their learning into their journal. For older grades, students can do independent research and complete their journal and share their learning with the class.
