|We used World Book Online to conduct our research. It's called Early World of Learning and is an awesome resource to have. Talk to your media or tech specialist to purchase a license for YOUR school!|
The question we used to guide our research came from our MMH reading series. The question is "What are some interesting insects?" Our note-taking template was super-simple to create. We just used some legal-sized paper and 3 post-its. Once we gathered our information, we wrote sentences to tell about our interesting insects. Our rule for sentences? Write a 3 star sentence!
1. Start with a capital letter. 2. Use spaces between words. 3. End with a period.

The following day, I read aloud the guided reader My Caterpillar Report. Using this book as a model, we created a list to show what needs to be included in an insect report.
