I hope you will find this project to be a tool to engage even your most reluctant learner in the process of writing a research paper. I have used this project with students in grades 3rd through 8th.
“It’s in the Bag” Research Paper will enable students to become familiar with the vocabulary and process involved in writing a research paper. Students use an interactive journal to set the groundwork for constructing their paper bag/3D graphic organizer .
The paper bag project is a rough draft/graphic organizer that starts students on the path to writing their final draft of their research paper. It is “hands-on” and as the students design and develop it they feel a sense of ownership and commitment. This encourages them to see the research paper through to it’s final completed state.
INCLUDES 9 printable templates for student's interactive journal and project.
