Real-Life Utopias Research Project - Research Skills Cube for The Giver (etc.)
What educators are saying
This short research project about utopias helps students practice research skills like summarizing, paraphrasing, embedding quotes, and citing sources. Each side of the Research Cube targets a different skill and presents a different facet of the topic. Students will love this alternative to a research paper!
Use this resource with any dystopian novel study or as a stand-alone project. This is a great alternative research project for The Giver or The Hunger Games.

Your students will love this low-stakes research activity! They start their cube on an ordinary box of tissues, and you can use these in your classroom after the project has been completed and graded.
I originally used this as a The Giver research project and had students create a utopia. You can use it to feature a real-life utopia or have students make their own.
