PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fall craftivity to do with your elementary students. One element of the Common Core Standards is teaching the students to use the internet to research different topics. I did my first research assignment with my 4th graders on the history of a scarecrow. I was nervous to have the students search the internet on their own, so I searched the internet ahead of time, and gave them a site that they were allowed to use to compile their research.
The first part of the assignment was to gather information on the history of the scarecrow. They used page 3 to guide them. Then they used the lined paper provided to write a summary of their research.
Two other items in this pack are comparing and contrasting the history of scarecrows in other cultures and writing a journal entry from the point of view of a scarecrow.

Included:
-scarecrow craft
-questions to guide their scarecrow research
-scarecrow paper
-journal entry from the scarecrow's point of view
-compare and contrast sheet: comparing different country's scarecrows

Common Core Standards:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.4.2 Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.4.2b Develop the topic with facts, definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples related to the topic.
