This is an inventions research project with a research writing component, a slideshow presentation, and an informative speech. Students will learn about an invention, how it impacts humans, as well as the positive and negative effects of the invention.
This NO PREP project includes a simple Inventions Webquest (in a Google Doc format that can be shared with students via Google OR printed for students to record findings pencil-to-paper), a research report with an outline, revising and editing checklists, informative writing rubrics for third, fourth, and fifth grade (aligned to Common Core writing and language standards), an informative slideshow extension, and writing stationary.
The Webquest portion of the project is where students will navigate various websites to learn about an invention. I recommend having books available for additional research, should students need them. Students can work in independently, in partners, or small groups for this project. Students will use their research to write a research report and create an informative slideshow! .
Prep for this project is EASY! Copy student papers in a packet and let students take their learning to new levels! Students will be engaged and excited to learn about inventions!
