Because I am only teaching literacy this year, I haven't been sharing them on our weekly Science board, but I wanted to incorporate them some way. Next week, we begin our big research project around Colorado Animals read more about past years' work HEREso I decided to incorporate these facts as a warm-up to internet research!
Here's what you'll need for this quick project: I have two versions of these facts and picked and chose from both sets for my class. There are 35 facts in each set, so you could use one or both sets for your class.
Version 1 is linked above and can be found HERE. Version 2 can be found HERE.
When a student found interest with a certain fact, I would hand the card to them. We continued this until everyone in the group had a fact to research.
We titled our page: Our first internet research minilesson was: What makes a good search term? I had them look at their fact and pick two to three key words that they could research. We talked about how one word was too broad, but typing in their entire fact common occurance! I had them work on their Chromebooks in Teacher Time so I could be close by.
Other conversations included perseverance going on to page 2 if resources on page 1 of the search results didn't give you what you neededfiltering if you don't understand a resource as a reader, you can't write about it as a researcher-- toss it and find a better resourceand paraphrasing we used the poster from my Academic Testing Vocabulary Posters to help remind them to put things in their own words.
The expectation was facts using bullet points in their Writer's Notebooks.
We then worked on getting these facts turned into a paragraph with an introduction and conclusion sentence. As a class, we decided the intro sentence should incorporate the Did You Know? Once they got a quick edit from me, I handed them their publishing page available as a freebie HERE and we assembled them together as a class.
We glued the poster to the front and their research on the inside. They are quick and easy to share and the kids are fascinated by each other's facts. The biggest take-away from me as their teacher was the search term lessons learned. This has always been a struggle in years past, but by tackling it with a mini-project like this, I found it to be manageable for all of us!Lesson Ideas.
