Hello fellow teacher! Are you shopping for a Native American Research Project for your tribe? Look no further! You'll pre-assess Native American schema, give background knowledge, and take notes from a digital source in this first lesson of eight!
Students will need some background knowledge of biomes before we can begin to discuss organisms that survive well, or not well, in those environments. This lesson will build motivation and provide an opportunity to build background schema.
Reading informational text, making sense of it, and connecting learning gleaned from the information is heavy duty for third graders. This lesson explores a step by step strategy to combine science, reading, and writing.
In order to be successful at any job, you need the right tools. Before we start collecting information, we need an organizational tool - the research notebook. Students learn how to use it correctly and avoid common research mistakes.
