Product Description
Reading and writing Informational Texts are an important part of the Common Core Standards. To make these Informational Text Features more meaningful for my students, I created an Informational Text Features book that each child researches and writes. My “I Can Write All About Science” is my favorite writing project that I do with my students each year. I have done this project for many years with first and second graders. This project is so versatile that you will be able to use it for any topic you’d like! In the past, my classes have made books on sharks, whales, fish, and penguins, but any topic that interests your young scientists will work! This packet includes examples from the books my students made when we were learning about penguins. You can include some or all of the pages, picking and choosing which text features are appropriate for your students.
