This 5 week nonfiction / informational writing unit will help you teach your second grade students to do simple research. Students will write biography reports and lab reports.

In this unit, students will write biographies about famous people by doing some simple research (20 different articles at a second grade reading level are provided for student use). Then, students will move on to writing lab reports about science experiments involving solids, liquids, and gases. Students incorporate those lab reports into nonfiction books.

- Write strong introductions and conclusions
- Use transition words in their writing
- Include adjectives and adverbs in their writing
- Use contractions and possessives
- Correctly use other writing conventions
- Revise and edit their work independently and with a partner
