Teaching young children to research can be challenging. That's why I created these kid-friendly booklets with limited information to help kids with one of their first research projects!
I had my kids learn to use digital resources and other books, but I wanted to teach them to find facts and put them into their own words and not have it be such an overwhelming project.
I also created a note taking packet to help guide the children in their search for facts.
Information on how to lead your kids through the research, note taking, poster creation, and presentation are also described.
Included in this pack are:
*instructions on how I led my students through the research project and how I helped them prepare a presentation for the class.
*pictures of steps throughout the project
*Booklets with facts about Illinois,
*note taking packet to help students take notes about their state
*picture boxes for poster creation
*list of character traits to describe people of interest
*bubble letters for the state
*Listening page for students to keep kids accountable during presentations
*Teacher note page
*Rubric for students to evaluate themselves
*Rubric for teachers to evaluate students
I used this in my classroom for the first time this year and it turned out so well!
