In this project, students will be asked to write a multi-paragraph essay and create a creative float for a state they do research on. This product is common core aligned especially for 5th grade, but could be adapted easily for other grades.
This product includes a page to collect research notes, an outline for both the report and float, grading rubrics for both, a state list, and picture examples of what their floats could look like. This product includes 2 versions (so pick the one that is better for you). The students will also be asked to record where they got their information from on a works cited page.
Parents and students will love doing this project and you can even hold a state float PARADE and invite parents and other classrooms to come see. This will be a project they will remember for a long time!
