Recent Feedback on the Research Projects Included in this Bundle:

"My students loved this project! Couldn't stop talking about it all year!”

"This is a fantastic resource! I love that this project is different than a typical state research project, but allows them to explore different areas of the US. The project is clearly laid out with manageable steps for kids. Great project!"

"This was a very fun and low prep research project. I used it this summer with 4th graders and they had a blast! The note taking and comprehension skill pages were very helpful and I was able to teach a few mini-lessons with them before having them take off and research. Will definitely be using again!"

"This was our first research project. Each student chose a different tribe to research. The guidelines were perfect. They took notes first then copied onto the pages. They learned how to find answers through the index. When they were finished, we put each student's pages into a folder with brads and they decorated the cover with art relevent to the tribe they studied. They were happy with the results and asked to do another research project right away!"
