A file folder flip for facts activity, is a nice introduction to doing research, finding facts and putting them in your own words. It’s a great precursor to doing a report and is simple enough for kinders to do.
The coin-themed flip for facts file folder packet, includes
tips and links for how to do Online citations, plus several pages of
penny facts, and a sample file folder, so you can easily make an example
to share with your students. There’s a flip for facts template for a penny, nickel, dime and quarter file folder.
I suggest 3-5 sources. Students
can simply write a number after their fact that corresponds with their
numbered sources, that they’ve listed on a separate page. Have children
glue their “bibliography” to the back of their folder.
