Research is extremely hard to teach and assess at the second grade level. Each year, I strive to come up with innovative ways to introduce and explore the concept of research with my students. Another topic students must learn in second grade involves life cycles. So…I have combined these two objectives to create a simple, “NO PREP” packet that will guide students through the research process while allowing them to learn about the life cycle of flowering plants.
What is Research?
Overview of Flowering Plants
List of Flowering Plants
25 Research Sheets (These are originally created for 25 different flowering plants. A description of the plant, along with information on its habitat, uses, life cycle, and other interesting facts, are included. Each research sheet also includes a coloring page for the flowering plant described.)
Simple Research Booklet (Correlates with research sheets)
I hope you find this useful with your kiddos! Thanks bunches, and enjoy!
