Inventors and Inventions
“Inventors and Inventions” is a short research project I created for my 4th grade students. I wanted a short project to introduce my students to basic research before we tackled longer projects. The lesson teaches students how to use websites to find the answer to research questions. If you have enough books, however, you could easily replace the websites with print sources.
Students learn the basics of paraphrasing and citing their sources of information. A final research portfolio is created by the end of the project.
