This is an open ended set of project ideas for Informational Text. It contains 6 project choices for this genre. Each project is explained in detail, and contains the CCSS that the project addresses. These projects could be used to differentiate instruction during intervention time, or assigned as a whole group project. The activities provide an opportunity for students to apply the CCSS skills they have been learning during mini lessons, and also making them accountable for their independent reading time. Included is a project choice slip for students to complete. One portion is kept by the student, while the other portion is given to the teacher. Students will gain experience with time management skills by assigning their own due dates on the project choice slip. This slip includes a blank for the name of the project the student has chosen to complete, as well as the due date he/she has selected with the teacher’s guidance. For ease of assessing the projects, a rubric has also been included.
