This packet divides students' research about famous Americans into the following categories: life, contributions to the country, and personality traits. I originally used it with fourth graders to write about famous Virginians; however, it can be used for any state. The packet includes space to record facts about each category listed above, as well as boxes labeled with the resource information (author, title of book or article, etc.) for books and internet sources. To further help your students organize their research, look for Bethany Holley's product "Research Paper Question Handout" on TpT!
