Looking for an easy to use, high-interest writing center for intermediate students? This pack contains four different writing/research activities. Just add Internet access and a few books (optional) to this pack and you are all set!
I am always looking for interesting writing and research projects for my students, especially those early finishers. Each of my students has a required amount of projects to complete by the end of the month (some as few as 1 and some as many as 4). I hang the pages up in 9 x 12 envelopes (and cut sheets of colored construction paper stapled to the board for larger pockets) on a bulletin board in my room (you could also use a three-sided display board). Students can go over the center and pull any of the pages they need and I keep the tub of books related to the topic there as well. We have Chromebooks at each table for students to use for research. The conservation of different animal species is so interesting for kids and it is such an important topic to gets kids thinking about (and maybe even doing something about it).
Time to get students interested about conservation!
