Product Description
Information Investigators is a collaborative research based exercise that asks a group of 4-5 students an essential question based on Science or Social Studies standards. Students interact with their investigative team and a wide variety of texts (photographs, diagrams, videos, songs, informational texts, magazine articles, etc.) to gain the necessary knowledge to answer the essential question.

This process allows students the opportunity to apply several strategies across the curriculum. Students must work in cooperative groups using accountable talk strategies, read and analyze a variety of texts tapping into several informational standards, all while utilizing scientist or social scientist process skills to answer a higher-level thinking question.

Your students will enjoy this engaging and challenging framework for investigating content area concepts. This freebie will guide you in creating your own Information Investigators as well as give you insight into how we use it in our classrooms.
