I have a group of students in my classroom that need a challenge. They are LOOKING for a challenge. And the regular word work and work on writing centers weren't doing the trick. I created this simple, kid friendly research project for my high learners to complete independently on their own. Of course, you can also use it for informational writing or a simple project to complete as a class.
Included in the research project:
*a map for students to locate and color regions where penguins inhabit
*a list for students to write words to describe penguins
*a flap book for students to write facts and opinions about penguins
*a fun pocket that holds information about penguin diet
*flaps for students to draw and label a penguin
*flaps for students to describe adaptations of a penguin
*a section for students to write a short summary of their research findings
The pack also includes photo step by step instructions on how to get started!
