PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Research is such a big part of the classroom. It covers multiple standards, but it's time consuming to design meaningful projects for your students! The Big 6 process for researching provides students with an organized way of finding information and presenting a final product. I've taken the six steps (Eisenberg and Berkowitz) and made them simple and kid friendly. These outlines are designed for grades 2-5, but can be modified to fit your needs. Ideally, you would present one or two outlines to your students at a time, guiding them to do research in a methodical way! These outline pages can be used with almost any research topic!

The six steps are:
*Task Definition
*Information Seeking Strategies
*Location and Access
*Use of Information
*Synthesis
*Evaluation

I've also included a super fun animal research project in this bundle! This was done with my second graders, but again, can be modified to fit your class' needs. For the animal research project, students research their animal's:
*habitat
*predators
*prey
*adaptations
*needs
*fun facts

In this bundle there is a "Finding the Facts" sheet for students to use as their rough draft, and an Animal Research Journal that students complete as their final product. You can easily modify the animal research project by letting students be more creative with their final product. I found that a very organized project was perfect for second graders! They had the structure they needed, but the freedom to find the information they were interested in.

I have also included a picture of the hallway display, because it was just adorable!! I know your students will have so much fun researching. I hope this works well for you. It's been a great tool to have in my classroom. :)
