This is a booklet for an 8 week long genius hour project. It has been scaffolded step-by-step for the younger grades; however can easily be used with older students. Contact me if you would also like the word file to easily edit according to your lesson/time frame. The booklet includes a cover page to glue on a file folder for each student, an introduction to students that gives them student friendly search engines. It also includes a timeline, a research brainstorm sheet, a research proposal, a note-keeping section, a work-log, a writing component instruction sheet, writing templates for both the rough draft and final draft, as well as a rubric that includes the project, presentation and writing standard.
