First off, I have to say how extremely proud I am of everyone for doing such an awesome job on these research projects. This was not a simple activity. This project took a while (longer than expected, too, because of our "cold days") and had multiple steps that built upon one another. I knew these kids could do it, though, and they did amazing.
On the first day the
groups read through their information sheets and highlighted important
facts. After they finished reading each section and highlighting, they
recorded their key details on a graphic organizer.
pictures, the groups had the option of using printed photos from the
internet, or illustrating their own images. Each group was given a
picture on their information sheet and on the sheet from Mrs. Gordon.
Some students brought great pictures they printed at home. A couple of
groups drew some wonderful pictures, too.
