This file is great for beginner researchers starting projects, taking, and organizing notes. Small spaces require students to take very brief notes, rather than copy straight from their source. There is a space for sources to be cited as well. PDF includes 2 pages: Research Questions: Notetaking, and Paragraph Writing page (intended to be printed front and back).
The notetaking layout is three columns, each with space for one question, the answer found, and the source used. The paragraph side has short directions with lines provided for writing.
I use this with 2nd graders as a jumping off point for larger research projects. It helps them organize their information and lets me know if they "get" notetaking.
