This will be the best way to have your students complete a research report! It gives you the items that you need to create pocket folders, where students can keep the information that they find neat and organized. It has pictures with step-by-step directions on how to create the folders. You will need to laminate them, but they will last for years!
There is an optional letter for you to use so that families can help their child find books on their chosen animal to send in for research. The research is neatly organized into 4 days. Each day the students will find facts on two topics about the animal.
Rough draft pages guide them through the writing of the report. This will take approximately 4 days, as well. There is also a page to help them list their sources. Once the students have created the research and the rough draft, they will have a page that guides them through the directions of their final draft, that should be typed. A rubric to grade this project is also included! Everything you need is already planned out for you right here! This project can be used for any animal that the student chooses to research.
