Bonus: Presentation Rubric

Activities have been designed for students in 1st through 3rd grade. Great for introducing young children to organizing given research information, putting it in sentence form, and presenting it in a different way.

Suggestions for implementing:

Insect Fact Sheets:
Place a copy of the fact sheets in a 3 ring binder and put it in your reading center along with other insect books. Children then have the opportunity to look through it, choose an insect to study, and place a sticky note with their name on that page. Print a copy for them to use for their project.

Insect Question Guide:
First Grade - answer questions as a whole group activity to model rephrasing questions and answering in complete sentences.
Second and Third Grade - set up so children can easily follow fact sheet to complete questions. Flexible enough to use along with other research sources to develop paragraph writing skills and create a more indepth project.

Some extension ideas:

Create a clay model of the insect and a habitat for it.

Oral Presentation - gives young learners experience in sharing information they have gathered. Presentation rubric included as a bonus gift.
