First Grade Research

Our first grade students have been working on research skills. They began by choosing a topic to research. After finding books about their topics, the children thought about what they already knew, and what they wanted to learn more about. They gathered information from non-fiction books and organized this information into a final written piece. Students also used the internet to search for pictures that illustrated their topic, and created computer drawings that reflected information that they had learned from their research. Pictured below, as a culminating activity, the children designed posters to share their knowledge of the topic with their classmates. (Post: Ms Lowell)
