Hi! This is a ready-to-go beginner research project on insects that is ideal for young students. (K - 2nd or 3rd grade would probably be best!) The project fits in perfectly with your science study of insects, and incorporates beginning research skills, creative writing, and art. Your students will choose an insect (or you can assign certain insects to avoid having 17 ladybugs be chosen!), look up basic facts about what the insect eats, where it lives, what it looks like, etc., complete a drawing of the insect, and write a creative story about what would happen if they switched places with their insect for a day. **All clip art and fonts are from Microsoft Word.
Also included is a handy and easy-to-use scoring rubric you can use to grade your students' projects!
The projects are printed two to a page so that you can cut the project pages apart, then staple them into a little booklet. Voila! Science/writing/research project done!! :)
Thanks for looking, and enjoy! ~Kristy Gross
