Product Description
Inspired by episode 39 of the Google Teacher Tribe, this Google Slides template activity includes directions for replacing images and publishing as an e-book to the web. This is an ideal activity for students in lower and middle elementary grades as a way to begin research and share their learning.

T.E.K.S.
Grade 2 ELAR (25) Research/Gathering Sources. Students determine, locate, and explore the full range of relevant sources addressing a research question and systematically record the information they gather. Students are expected to: (A) gather evidence from available sources (natural and personal) as well as from interviews with local experts; (B) use text features (e.g., table of contents, alphabetized index, headings) in age-appropriate reference works (e.g., picture dictionaries) to locate information; and (C) record basic information in simple visual formats (e.g., notes, charts, picture graphs, diagrams).

3rd Grade ELAR (25) Research/Research Plan. Students ask open-ended research questions and develop a plan for answering them. Students are expected to: (A) generate research topics from personal interests or by brainstorming with others, narrow to one topic, and formulate open-ended questions about the major research topic; and (B) generate a research plan for gathering relevant information (e.g., surveys, interviews, encyclopedias) about the major research question.
(26) Research/Gathering Sources. Students determine, locate, and explore the full range of relevant sources addressing a research question and systematically record the information they gather. Students are expected to: (A) follow the research plan to collect information from multiple sources of information, both oral and written, including: (i) student-initiated surveys, on-site inspections, and interviews; revised August 2017 9 (ii) data from experts, reference texts, and online searches; and (iii) visual sources of information (e.g., maps, timelines, graphs) where appropriate; (B) use skimming and scanning techniques to identify data by looking at text features (e.g., bold print, captions, key words, italics); (C) take simple notes and sort evidence into provided categories or an organizer; (D) identify the author, title, publisher, and publication year of sources; and (E) differentiate between paraphrasing and plagiarism and identify the importance of citing valid and reliable sources.
(27) Research/Synthesizing Information. Students clarify research questions and evaluate and synthesize collected information. Students are expected to improve the focus of research as a result of consulting expert sources (e.g., reference librarians and local experts on the topic).
(28) Research/Organizing and Presenting Ideas. Students organize and present their ideas and information according to the purpose of the research and their audience. Students are expected to draw conclusions through a brief written explanation and create a works-cited page from notes, including the author, title, publisher, and publication year for each source used.
