This is a HUGE, 135 page resource to help your students produce research reports on States, Presidents, and the Thirteen Colonies.This 5th Grade Social Studies U.S. History bundle combines 3 research reports into 1 great value! Students LOVE learning about these important topics, and while they research you can pull small groups of students to meet their instructional needs!
These research reports were developed to align with the new Common Core Anchor Standards, Reading and Foundation Skills for Informational Text and Writing for ELA History/ Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects; “Students will write informative / explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas and information clearly and accurately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content.”
These research reports were created in support of these standards to create, develop, write, edit, illustrate, present, and assess your students’ research report. These reports (or performance tasks) are also designed to not only have your students learn and explain the new information, but answer some higher level thinking questions (Common Core Essential Questions) to apply the knowledge they have learned.
Each research report contains a title page, factual questions to be answered, Common Core Essential Questions, Rubric, Student Checklist, Illustration Templates, “How to Research”, Resource Page, Note-Taking Pages, and Teacher Notes. You can use these report templates in their entirety, or “pick and choose” the questions that you wish to use and tailor them to your students’ needs.
