What is a Fact File?

A Fact File is a student-generated resource used to record and store information about a particular topic, using the guidance of the templates included within. Each template is pasted into a file folder to help students organize and collect information about a given topic. Fact Files are a great addition to your current non-fiction studies! {Be sure to check out the preview for a sample Fact File!}

Each Fact File contains the following elements to help guide the student’s exploration and study of a particular topic:
- What do you know about.. web (complete before study formally begins)
- Questions I Have About.. template (complete before and during study)
- Fact Cards + Fact Card Pocket
- Sticky Note Spot
- Vocabulary Envelope
- Directed List space
- Diagram drawing spot
- Collection Pocket

The October Fact File set includes templates for studying: bats, spiders, owls, firefighters, pumpkins, and Christopher Columbus.

Please Note: This is not a lesson plan and does not include activities or lessons for completing the Fact File.
