I want students to be able to research as independently as possible. This is a process that requires practice and knowledge about understanding questions and the key words in those questions.
There are several sections of this:
An example powerpoint
A power point that has links to topics. (Students will find the answers here.
There is a specific grade sheet for each age group. It goes like this:
a. one set of questions for grades 2-3
b. one set of questions for grades 4-5.
Students can print the sheets or send me the answers by email. They can also give them to me when school starts next year, unless they are graduating fifth graders.
Don't be frightened to do these. You will learn alot.
