This planner is designed for younger children to be independent when learning how to research. There is a brainstorming page, question and answer pages, index cards, reference page and a research guide for writing the project. The subtopic sheets and coordinating cards should be printed on the same color (you should have 5 different colors of paper and two of each. This way the child can match up the questions and put the answers he finds on the coordinating cards. The cards can then be cut apart and used for an oral presentation.
