We’re about 1/3 of the way through this project, and research is beginning to “peak.” Kids have spent the week finding resources, first. Before any real research can happen, the kids HAVE to be sure their topic has a variety of sources – primary, secondary and accurate! – to develop a great pool of information to learn from.
Each student needs 10 resources. Partners need 15. The groups of 3 need 24. By the end of class today, research should be complete.
On Wednesday, the next phase of this project is due. Students must find at least 30 pieces of evidence to help them build their project. Partners need 45 facts (this could include photos, too), and groups need 60.
