Children are capable of doing research. They just need to have resources and graphic organizer templates to use. It is important to organize the information into manageable amounts when doing research. Even younger children can do simple research projects if we provide them with support and the appropriate resources, templates or other graphic organizers. They can create amazing projects with the right materials.
Children can use graphic organizer templates effectively
I love doing simple research projects with my students. One of my favorites is an animal research powerpoint. Sometimes people don’t think that younger children can create quality powerpoints, but I have several dvd collections of powerpoints that my grade 2/3 classes have created.
Animal Research Planning Templates
I created these planning templates so that the children could organize their material into manageable parts that would also fit onto powerpoint slides. There are 3 different templates available.
Here is one of the templates included. If you would like to have a copy of these templates, click one of the images.
I hope you will find this helpful with your students as they create their animal research projects.
