As part of grade 6 language arts, students are required to research and report on a specific topic. So, as part of our science unit on flight, the students have all been assigned a famous person pertaining to flight to research and write their biography (biographies are a grade 5 outcome).
Our writing workshops the next couple of weeks concentrate on various skills needed to research, compiling a bibliography, and writing a well-written and interesting biography.
We've looked at the book Barack as an example text.
Now students are looking at researching information about one of our bookshelf friends, Cheeks.
|"Cheeks." Baboon. |
Isn't he cute?
